How To Google Chrome History Delete

While browsing the internet, your web browser collects data about the sites you visit, the forms you fill out, and the resources you download. This information is stored in your browsing history and can be used to improve your browsing experience. However, there may be times when you want to clear your browsing history – whether it’s for privacy, troubleshooting, or simply to free up some storage space. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to delete your Google Chrome history.

Step 1: Open Google Chrome

Firstly, make sure that Google Chrome is installed and open on your device. If it’s not already installed, you can download it from the Google Chrome website.

Step 2: Open Chrome’s History Page

Once Google Chrome is open, click on the three vertical dots located in the top-right corner of the browser window to open a dropdown menu. From here, click on History, then again on History in the submenu.

Step 3: Delete Your Browsing History

In the History page, you’ll see a button on the left-hand side labelled Clear Browsing Data. Clicking on this button will open a new window.

In this window, you’ll see several options for clearing your browsing data, including:

  • Browsing history: A list of sites you’ve visited.
  • Cookies and site data: Information sites have stored on your device to remember your preferences.
  • Cached images and files: Copies of pages, images, and other media content stored on your device by websites you’ve visited.

You can choose to delete all of this data, or only certain types of data. To choose which data to delete, click on the checkboxes next to each option.

Beneath these options, you’ll see a dropdown menu labelled Time Range. This allows you to delete browsing data from a certain period of time. If you want to delete all of your browsing data, select All Time from this dropdown menu.

Once you’ve selected the data you want to delete and the time range, click on the blue button labelled Clear Data. This will delete your selected browsing data from Google Chrome.


Deleting your browsing history in Google Chrome is a simple process that can help maintain your privacy and keep your browser running smoothly. Just remember that once your browsing history is deleted, it cannot be recovered, so make sure you won’t need any of the information before you clear it!
