    How to Clear Your Location History on Windows 10 PC


    Some apps need to know when youre in a specific location to work correctly. For instance, if youve asked an app to remind you to buy bread when youre in the grocery store, the app will need to know when youre in the store. To give you maps to get you where youre going, or to show you lists of shops or restaurants near you, many apps and services request location information from your device. Thats what the Windows 10 location service does: tells your apps and services where you are or where youve been, so that you can get info more relevant to you.

    Some Windows apps and services that use location info also use your location history. When the location setting is on, locations looked up by apps or services will be stored on the device for a limited time (24 hours in Windows 10), then deleted. Apps that have access to this info will be labeled Uses location history on the Location settings page.

    This tutorial will show you how to manually clear the location history for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Privacy icon.

    2. Click/tap on Location on the left side in Settings, and click/tap on the Clear button under Location history on the right side. (see screenshot below)

    3. You will now see a check mark to the right of the Clear button indicating your location history on this device has been cleared. (see screenshot below)

    4. You can now close Settings if you like.


    That's it,

    What does "Clear file explorer history" do?

    Hi Astoach

    Clearing File Explorer History simply deletes the list of file/folder locations visited in Explorer along with the list of any searches you performed in Explorer

    Somehow that cache must have become corrupt and clearing that history deletes the cache and creates a new one

    It is no harm to delete that history from time to time, it will not affect the good running of your PC . . .

  6. Clear history in music + videos

    So if you have a history item you want off that list, the only option you currently have at this time is to play other items. As they appear in the list, the older history items will scroll off the list.

    I would ask that you consider offering your thoughts at the official suggestion box and hopefully someone on the team will push to have that implemented.



    I can tell you that they DO READ THEM and your input would be valuable.

    Feature suggestions can be made at

    .

    You could also use the Suggestion Box app to post suggestions & feature requests for wp8 from your windows
