Clearing the browser's address bar



How do I clear the drop down menu in my browser's address bar?



If you are using Windows 98 or later, you can normally clear all personal lists by going to Start, Settings, Task Bar, and choose the tab at the top marked Start Menu Programs. Then choose Clear Documents. This clears your documents list as well as your address history.

In most Internet Explorer versions, the box of addresses that drops down from the address bar can be cleared when you clear the History. To clear history:
  • Go to the Tools menu and choose Options.
  • On the top tabs select General.
  • Click the button marked Clear History.
  • Click OK.




If you have Netscape Communicator of version 4.06 or above, there is an option for clearing this menu as well. To access that option do the following:

  • Go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences.
  • On the left select Navigator.
  • Click the button marked Clear Location Bar.
  • Click OK.
