To remove the search history on a computer that uses Internet Explorer, first view the browsing history, or cache, right-click the site for removal and then click the delete option. To find the History section, click the Favorites button. The Favorites button on Internet Explorer is shaped like an open star.

Depending on the browser used, the instructions may differ slightly, such as those for Mozilla. To clear the search history on Mozilla, click the button that looks like three horizontal bars. This is called the Menu button. From there, choose History and then choose Clear Recent History. The option of a time range to clear will then appear for consideration.
