My question is pertaining to the "drop down" box that appears when i select an input field.

For example, in Google, when i click inside the Search box, a drop down box appears with all of the entries i have typed in the past. The same thing happens for like User Name boxes and whatnot.

I would like to know how to clear that history. It is really long and now it isn't useful so i would like to reset it. Hopefully i described the problem accurately and someone can help me.

Thank you for your help.

The easiest way is to run AFT Cleaner

Make sure you run it with your browser closed. It's fast and light on system resources.

Hope this helps :whistling:

Hey,

Thanks for the response, Jayzee. Actually programs like ATF Cleaner and CleanUp! don't clear these histories... Any other suggestions?
