How to delete your Internet history using the following website browsers
Internet Explorer – step by step
Delete Internet Explorer 7 Browsing History
Open Internet Explorer 7 and follow these steps:
Temporary internet files: The first section in this window deals with temporary internet files. Internet Explorer stores images, multimedia files, and even full copies of websites that you have visited in an effort to reduce load time on your next visit to that same page. To remove all of these temporary files from your hard drive, click the button labeled Delete files….
Cookies: When you visit certain websites, a text file is placed on your hard drive that is used by the site to store user-specific settings and other information. This cookie is utilized by the respective site each time you return in order to provide a customized experience or to retrieve your login credentials. To remove all Internet Explorer cookies from your hard drive, click Delete cookies….
Browsing history: The third section in the Delete Browsing History window deals with history. Internet Explorer records and stores a list of all websites that you visit. To remove this list of sites, click Delete history….
Form data: The next part pertains to form data, which is information that you’ve entered into forms. For example, you may have noticed when filling out your name in a form that after typing the first letter or two, your entire name populates in the field. This is because IE stored your name from an entry in a previous form. Although this can be very convenient, it can also become an obvious privacy issue. Remove this information with the Delete forms… button.
Passwords: The fifth and final section is where you can delete saved passwords. When entering a password on a website, like your email login, Internet Explorer will usually ask if you want it to remember the password for the next time you’re logging in. To remove these saved passwords from IE7, click Delete passwords….
How to Delete Everything at Once
At the bottom of the Delete Browsing History window is a Delete all… button. Use this to remove everything mentioned above.
Located directly under this question is an optional checkbox called Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons. Some browser add-ons and plug-ins might store similar information like Internet Explorer does, like form data and passwords. Use this button to remove that information from your computer.
