Clearing Your Computer's History

At all times, Windows keeps a chronological history of all web pages that you visit while online. For your safety, you may want to delete the record of web pages you have visited. It is a very simple process which will not in any way affect your computer other than to erase the fact that you have visited certain pages.

How to clear your computer's history of web pages you have visited (Windows 95 and higher):

  1. Click the tab marked History in the toolbar of Internet Explorer.
  2. Your web pages visited history will appear on the left.
  3. Under today's pages, highlight the names of pages you wish to remove from the history and hit the delete key on your keyboard on each page name highlighted.
  4. Exit your Internet browser. This method will only delete the selected pages.
  5. To clear all of your history, follow steps 1 and 2 above then push button that says “Clear History.” The computer will ask if you are sure you want to do this, press “Yes.”

If you have Windows 3.1 or older you will have to follow these steps instead:

  1. On your Internet browser click on Tools
  2. Click Internet Options
  3. In the section called Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files then click OK
  4. In the section called History, click Delete History then click OK

NOTE: This method will delete all pages visited since history began.

By doing this you will not harm your computer in any way. However, should your partner click on History, he may realize that you or someone has deleted the history records. If this happens, and you are the only other person using that computer, a good reason to give for your actions (if necessary) would be that you heard or read that by deleting these temporary history files your computer would be faster and waste less disk space, which is true.

NOTE: If you are running a browser other than those listed above and would like more information on how to clear your browser's cache, please refer to your browser's help file.
