Hi my name is Dave Andrews and today I'm going to show you how to delete selected cookies. Sometimes you don't want to delete all the cookies on a system or your entire browsing history you just want to delete one cookie so I'm going to show you how to do that. On your computer just begin by opening up your internet explorer browser and inside internet explorer I am going to go to tools and then find internet options Now under browsing history click on settings and in this dialog box that pops up we want to click on view files. Now what this view files has done is pulled up our temporary internet files that are stored on this computer. This is all of the downloaded images and web pages and cookies that are stored locally on your hard drive so scroll down until you find the cookie that you would like to delete and it usually starts with the word cookie and the type of it right here right next to it is going to say cookie as well so just fine the cookie you want, right click on it and just select delete. That is going to confirm that you actually want to delete the cookie that you have selected so just click on yes. As you can see that cookie has been deleted out of our internet files. I'm Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to delete selected cookies.
