How to Turn Off Browser History in the Internet Explorer Address Bar


All versions of Internet Explorer will retain your search history within the address bar. By default, Internet Explorer will keep these entries for 20 days. If you have privacy concerns or just do not like this feature, there is an option that allows you to disable it.

  • Open Internet Explorer.

  • Click on “Tools,” then on “Internet Options.”

  • Click on the “Settings” button under the “Browsing History” section.

  • Look at the bottom section called “History.” Change the “20” to “0” in the box next to “Days to keep pages in history.”

  • Restart Internet Explorer.
