Microsoft Edge is a great alternative to Google Chrome on Windows and Mac. If you want to keep your privacy after browsing, here’s how to clear your browsing history in Microsoft Edge.
First, open the Microsoft Edge browser to get started. Then click the three-dot menu button on the toolbar.
Choose the “Settings” option. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Command+Comma(,).
Go to the “Privacy, Search and Services” section in the sidebar. Then, in the “Clear browsing data now” section, click the “Choose what to clear” option.
In the “Time range” section, choose the time frame from which you want to delete your browsing data. You can delete data from the last hour, the last day, the previous week, or the last four weeks. If you want to erase all data, use “All Time” option.
Now it’s time to select the types of browsing data you want to clear. These are the available data types:
- browsing data
- download history
- cookies and other site data
- cached images and files
- autofill form datagegevens
- site permissions
Select the data you want to clear and click the “Clear Now” button.
It’s important to note that this step also clears data synced to your Microsoft account (if it’s connected) and other devices running Microsoft Edge.
Once the process is complete, you can close the Settings tab and continue browsing.
If you plan to complete this process often, we have some suggestions. You can go directly to the Clear Browsing Data section in Settings by entering the following address in the URL bar.
You can also go to Menu > History, click the three-dot menu button and choose “Clear browsing data” to quickly access the relevant section.
But what’s even cooler is that you can automate this whole process. Edge has a feature that automatically clears pre-configured browsing data every time you close the browser!
