    Clearing Activity History Problem


    Hi,

    I turned off collecting and cleared all my Activity History (Win 10 - 1803), but one file from one a month won't clear, it sticks there kind of greyed out. Nothing happens when clicked. This is a bug or ... ?

    Any idea about this?

    Regards

    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
