You can delete all of your visited websites by deleting the history in the browser of your choice. From Google Chrome to Internet Explorer, each browser provides the option to delete browsing history, cookies, cache and more. Although browsers vary, each one has this option located within the toolbar menu.

  1. Locate the menu

    With your browser open, look for a button located somewhere next to the search and URL text fields. In Firefox and Chrome, this button looks like three horizontal lines on top of each other. In Internet Explorer, it looks like a cog wheel. Click the button, and select History. In IE, click the cog, and select Safety.

  2. Make your selections

    In the new windows, check the tick boxes for things you want to delete, such as browsing history and cookies. In IE, click Delete Browsing History. Depending on which options you checked and how long it has been since you cleared your browser, it may take some time for it to run the deletion process.

  3. Restart the browser

    Restart the browser after the task completes. Type the name of a site you have visited in the past in the URL field. A successful deletion shows no traces of any previous visits to that site.
