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.
To Delete Browsing History
Go to IE –> Tap on the three dots
–> Tap on recent
–> Tap on the thrash icon to delete all recently viewed pages
Go to IE –> Tap on the three dots [ As done previously]
–>Tap on settings
–>Tap on the delete history button to delete the complete browsing history.
Still if you check you can see some search terms which was saved automatically.
To Delete Search History
In the bottom panel with windows icon
–>Tap on the search icon
–>Tap the three dots –> Tap on settings
–>Tap on the delete history button to delete all search history.
Still if you check you can see some websites name coming up.
These will be the ones stored in your favourites. If you don’t want to see it. Don’t save any favourite websites.
Hope this helps
