Hi my name is Dave Andrews, today I'm going to show you how to clean up URLs on your PC. Lets go to our computer, lets open up our web browser by clicking on the start button. And we are going to go to Internet Explorer. Now if you are like me, you've visited a lot of sites and as you click this little drop down box here, all of those sites are listed here and that can get pretty full, pretty quickly depending on how you use your web browser. So I'm going to show you how to clean this up simply by clicking on the tools icon over here, lets go down to Internet options. And now here in the middle section where it says browsing history you want to click on delete. Now this gives you the option to delete the temporary Internet files and the cookies and the history that's stored on your web browser that build up over time as you search the Internet. I'm just going to click on delete all and I'm going to tell it also to delete the files and settings that are stored by add ons and I'm just going to click yes. Now this is going through and removing all of the browsing history, all the URLs and all the temporary Internet files that have built up on my PC. If I close this out, and I click this drop down list now you can see that all those URLs have been cleaned up. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to clean up URLs on your PC.
