How to Delete a History List


Deleting a computer's Internet history can be done in a very short period of time to ensure your privacy. The steps, however, differ depending on which Internet browser you use.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Internet

Internet Explorer

  • Select "Tools" in the toolbar.

  • Select the "Delete Browsing History." There will be several different boxes that will come up, such as temporary Internet files, cookies, history, form data, passwords and InPrivate filtering data, all of which have explanations beside them. If you want to delete any of these, check the box; if not, leave the box unmarked.

  • Select the "Delete All" function.

  • Click "Yes."



  • Go into the browser window and select "Security" and then the "Clear My Footprints" options.

  • Select the "Clear Footprints" option, as this will clear the "Selected Footprints."

  • Select "Select Footprints to Clear" to change the AOL history footprints.

  • Click the "OK" option.
