    How do I delete the drop-down list of my past searches?

    You can clear your Google search history from the Google search box, the Google Toolbar, or your browser. We've included instructions for all three methods below.

    CLEARING YOUR GOOGLE SEARCH BOX HISTORY

    The search history that displays in the search box on the Google homepage is stored by your browser, not by Google. Instructions appear below for disabling this search history in common browsers. If your browser isn't listed, we suggest consulting its online support center.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Internet Options" and the "Content" tab.

    3. Within the "Personal information" area, select "AutoComplete."

    4. Click on "Clear Forms." You can also un-check the "Forms" box in this window to keep this information from being stored in the future.

    5. Click "OK" to exit.

    Alternatively, you can delete individual entries from your search history by using the Down arrow key to highlight a previous search, then pressing the Delete key once.

    MSN

    If you're using the Microsoft Network (MSN), changes made in Internet Explorer (IE) will take effect in your MSN browser. After making changes in IE, you'll need to sign out of and back into MSN for the changes to take effect.

    Mozilla Firefox

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Options" > "Privacy" > "Saved Form Information."

    3. Click "Clear" and un-check the box.

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    Safari

    1. Go to the "Safari" menu and select "Preferences."

    2. From the menus that pop up, select "Autofill."

    3. Go to "Other forms" line and select the "Edit" button.

    4. From the list of sites for which AutoFill is currently being applied, select "Google.com" > "Remove" > "Done."

    CLEARING YOUR GOOGLE TOOLBAR HISTORY

    To clear your search history from the drop-down text box on the Google Toolbar:

    1. Click on the Google logo on the Toolbar to access the drop-down menu.

    2. Select the "Clear Search History" option.

    If you'd like to completely disable your Toolbar's search history, please click the "Options" button on your Toolbar and un-check the box next to "Drop-down search history."

    If you have Google Toolbar 4.0 installed, you can clear your Toolbar's search history by starting to enter a search term in your Toolbar's search box. When your drop-down search history appears, simply click the "Clear History" link.

    Please note that this only clears the search history from the Google Toolbar, which is entirely separate from the search history stored by your browser.

    If you've followed these steps and information still appears in your Toolbar search box as you type, please visit http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer... for additional assistance.

    CLEARING YOUR BROWSER HISTORY

    Like your Google search box history, the search history that displays in the address bar on the Google homepage is stored by your browser, not by Google. Instructions appear below for clearing and/or disabling your search history in common browsers. If your browser isn't listed, we suggest consulting its online support center.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Internet Options" and the "General" tab.

    3. Click the "Clear History" button. To completely disable the history function, set "Days to keep pages in history" to zero ("0").

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    MSN

    If you're using the Microsoft Network (MSN), changes made in Internet Explorer (IE) will take effect in your MSN browser. After making changes in IE, you'll need to sign out of and back into MSN for the changes to take effect.

    Mozilla Firefox

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Options" > "Privacy" > "History."

    3. Click on "Clear." To completely disable the history function, set "Remember visited pages for the last X days" to zero ("0").

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    Safari

    1. Click "History" on the top menu.

    2. Click "Clear History" at the bottom of the menu.

    this has nothing to do with what search engine you are using. it is the autocomplete function in your browser that is doing that. you cannot delete those. all you can do is turn off autocomplete so no one can use it.

    ★★ DISABLE AUTOCOMPLETE ★★

    ◙ If you have Yahoo Toolbar click on the edit button to disable the AutoComplete function.

    ◙ Internet Explorer

    1. From Internet Explorer, choose "Tools" then "Internet Options".

    2. From the "Internet Options" multi-tabbed dialog box that appears, select the "Content" tab.

    3. Click the "AutoComplete" button.

    4. Uncheck everything.

    5. Click the "Clear Forms" button.

    6. Click the "Clear Passwords" button.

    7. Press "OK" to close the dialog boxes.

    ◙ NOTE: AutoComplete may not stay off completely because some webmasters have autocomplete="on" in the form tag in their web forms. If you come to one of these and you can't get the AutoComplete to leave you alone while you type something in to the form. Simply paste the text in from a wordprocessor or notepad and it won't bother you.

    Every search engine has their own way to delete it. Simply you have to find out the history of the particular browser and delete it. Once you find out the history of the browser then you will be able to clear it out.

    "Hope this helped."
