Deleting browser history

by BridgetW / February 4, 2008 9:32 PM PST

I'm using Vista and in the control panel under internet options is where I delete my browsing history. The thing is, it makes me delete all of it; what if I only want to remove cookies and leave my saved passwords?

Then move on to "FIREFOX" browser which has a better tools/options in these matters. I suspect you keep with IE7, that yeah, all history is gone to include cookies. You can try looking at some IE add-ons or support pgms. to see if they address this issue, but I don't as I use Firefox all the time. Check at this website for possible pgm cures: or any similar websites for files.

In MSIE, click on "Tools" on the right side.

Then, click on the Delete button under Browsing History in the General tab. Then, delete those items you want. In Firefox, click Tools, then Clear Private Data. Check the items you want deleted, then click Clear Private Data Now. Simple, no?
