Deleting web pages from my browser

I am on WindowsXP I would like to delete some web pages off my internet browser

I hope I am calling this right. The place I want to delete file from is were you type in a web address
and it goes to the web page.

In the drop down of my internet browser I have about 15 web address but I want to remove some but don't know
how to do this.

I am not very PC literate so if any one can give me some help with how I delete these web pages I would be grateful


Regards

Tony.

Hi Tony

Welcome to Free PC Help

Well if your running Firefox then the addresses are in Bookmarks, just right click on any of them and in the drop down box just hit Delete.
In IE Bookmarks are called Favourites.

Is this what you mean?

Hi tony and welcome to Free PC Help;
The feature you are talking about is called AutoComplete.

In Internet Explorer 7:
Open Internet Explorer.
From the Tools menu, click Delete Browsing History.
Click the Delete button under Form Data.
Click Yes to confirm your actions.
Click Close.

If you're using IE6 pleast post back;

Open Internet Explorer.
From the Tools menu, Click Internet options.
Click on the Content tab at the top.
In the AutoComplete section click on Settings.
Select your choices.
Click OK. Click OK

Good luck;

Have a look at the top Tony where it says Help.
In there is a section called About.
Tell us what it says in About please, mainly the Version number.

If you have IE6:
Open Internet Explorer.
From the Tools menu, Click Internet options.
Click on the Content tab at the top.
In the Personal information section click AutoComplete.

You can clear the AutoComplete history from here by using the Clear Forms tab and Clear Passwords tab.

If you had AutoComplete set to save addresses you typed in the address bar and want to clear those, you might have to clear History from the General tab.

Hi Randy,

I got some help from a guy at work with my problem.

I wanted to delete all the web sits out of my browser as I had a site that I did not want on my browser.

I went on tools, internet options, delete cookies then delete files then delete history and it worked.

Thank you for coming back to me I did not know were to get advice and found your site which was helpful.

Thanks for taking the time to try and help me out with my PC problem


All the best

Tony.
