How to delete previous Google searches?

When I go to Google and enter the first letter of a search term, it brings up a list of all of my previous searches beginning with that letter. How do I delete all previous searches?

Thanks in advance.

Do you mean in the google search bar

if so..
Click on the word "google" on the tool bar, in the drop panel select "Option" then the "Search" tab - various option will be listed including keeping search history.
Within a search session, simply just click on the "google" tab in the tool bar and select "clear search history"

delete button works also

You could also just click on the search bar and your previous searches will come up. You can press the delete button until they are gone. That is what I usually do...

And in the Google Deskbar.....

Click the options arrow, and then click "Clear AutoComplete History".
