How To Clear Web History On Internet Explorer (for Windows Phone)


When you use your Windows Phone 7 for browsing the internet, all the websites that you visit and the searches that you make are logged in Internet Explorer’s history. This is done for convenience just in case you ever wanted to revisit some of these sites without having to do the Google search for it again (or having to bookmark it).

However, there are times when you don’t want your history logged (such as when you make an embarrassing Google search). In this how-to, you’ll find the step by step instructions to clearing Internet Explorer’s history on your WP7 device:

  1. Open Internet Explorer on your Windows Phone.
  2. Press the menu button on the bottom toolbar (the three horizontal dots).
  3. Go to settings.
  4. Scroll down and tap on “delete history.”
  5. Confirm by pressing delete again.
