    For the Yahoo toolbar check the controls under the pencil menu. For other toolbars check their options.

    The list which appears in a search box is actually part of the forms fill-in feature controlled by your browser. Clearing history or cookies will not remove the search history. Clearing history only removes the history of sites visited not searches.

    To stop or clear search history in Internet Explorer:

    Go to tools/internet options/content tab.

    Under Personal information click on the "AutoComplete" box.

    You can "clear forms" or stop search history there.

    A single item can be deleted rom the search history by pressing the "delete" key while the item is highlighted.

    To stop or clear search history in Firefox:

    Go to tools/options/privacy button/saved forms tab

    You can "clear forms" or stop search history there.

    A single item can be deleted by pressing the "shift delete" key while the item is highlighted.

    For other browsers just look for the automatic forms fill-in feature.

    go to your browser's top. There should be a button with extras, settings or options (depends on your browser) there you should be able to find a button online history. From there you are able to delete the search history.
