You're browsing through your Internet history and come across a few websites that you would like to remove from the list. Now, you know that by clicking Tools > Internet Options > Delete Internet History that you are able to remove all of your Internet history, but then you realize that you want to keep most of the websites intact. There is a convenient way to remove just parts of your browser history which means you can get rid of the sites you no longer need while keeping your favorite websites available.
Open a new web browser, and click the down arrow to the left of the URL. Alternately, press Ctrl+H to display the history on the left sidebar of the webpage.
Right-click on the parts of the browser history that you want to remove. Remove them one at a time, right-clicking on each one and selecting Delete.
Continue until you successfully remove all necessary websites and close the Internet browser. Open a new browser and double-check to be sure you have removed the necessary parts of the history.
