    Deleteing browser history

    I am computer illiterate. I am trying to delete something in my browser history. Help says go to "internet options". I have no idea where to go on my computer to find the first step "internet options". Can someone help a senior citizen get through this maze?

    Browser History won't delete

    Try this method! The way to delete your browsing history is to go to your Settings, swipe left to go to the Applications. Select Internet Explorer. Scroll down to the bottom of that page. You will see the box that says "delete history" You will get the
    confirmation page "Are you sure?" then select delete. Your browser history, cookies, saved passwords, and temporary internet files will be deleted. The information that EdHans posted should also have worked for you.

    With that taken care of:

    • You will probably want to check; Allow cookies on my phone. This will make your browsing perform a little faster and not affect any purchasing of any apps you chose to buy.
    • Checking the "Get suggestions from Bing as I type" will bring up suggestions to what you may be looking for. I find this very beneficial when searching for something.
    • By 'Allow Internet Explorer to collect my browsing history' will make it easier for you to return to previous sites you visit.
    You can always follow the directions that I've posted to delete your history at leisure or when you choose.

    I hope this answers your question and solves your problem. If so, please mark this answer as helpful and answered. Please post back if you need more assistance.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for your feedback. This misbehavior has been reported to MS. Another user was able to delete the history completely after using the browser till the point where the affected website was pushed off the list by other websites.

    Best Regards

    deleting browser history

    I solved this issue on my Samsung Focus by closing out all the tabs in IE and then deleting your history.

    When you open IE on your WP7, there are three icons at the bottom of the screen- Add, Favorites, and Tabs. If you have multiple tabs open then a number will be displayed inside the Tabs icon indicating how many tabs are currently open on your browser.
    Click the Tabs icon and a list will pop up showing you all the tabs that are open. There you have the option to close out the tabs by pressing the X. I'm not sure if it's necessary, but then you can go ahead and delete your history as well. I also had "Allow
    cookies on my phone" and "Let Bing suggest sites as I type" unchecked, although I'm not entirely sure that mattered.

    Hope this helps!
