Windows Phone – Delete history in IE

I have a windows phone[Lumia 535] and for a long time I have been searching to find a way to delete the Search History in internet explorer. If I clear browser history in IE, still the search history will persistently be there.

After much searching, I found the reason for this accidentally. I was also supposed to go to Bing search settings and clear the search history from there.

Thought of writing a how to for both of this so that it might be helpful for others also.
