How to delete previous Google searches?

by krar4 / May 30, 2005 11:39 AM PDT

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
by AussiePete / May 30, 2005 11:54 AM PDT

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"

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...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
