Do you want to quickly clear your browsing data in Google Chrome? Three is not necessary to scroll through menus – it’s as simple as a single keyboard shortcut and a few clicks. Here’s how to do it.
First open ̵
- Windows or Linux: Press Ctrl + Shift + Delete
- Mac: Press Command + Shift + Backspace. (On a Mac, the backspace key is called “Delete.” Note that pressing the Delete key next to the Home and Edit keys doesn’t work.)
- Chromebook: Press Ctrl + Shift + Backspace.
- iPhone and iPad (with keyboard attached): Press Command + Y.
After pressing the shortcut on Windows, Linux, Mac or Chromebook, a “Settings” tab will open and a “Clear browsing data” will be displayed. Select the options you want and click on ‘Clear data’. If you want to do it completely hands-free, press ‘Tab’ several times until the ‘Clear data’ button is selected, then press ‘Enter’ or ‘Return’.
On an iPhone or iPad with a connected keyboard, a “History” window will appear. Tap “Clear browsing data” at the bottom of the window and a “Clear browsing data” window will appear. Tap the “Clear browsing data” button at the bottom and confirm.
Your history will be cleared to the level you have chosen. Repeat whenever you want. Privacy is good!
