Delete Chrome Browsing History
This article will show you a step-by-step guide to clearing or delete Chrome browsing history from your Windows desktop or laptop for a specific time range or deleting all history.
Every web browser that you use on your computer to do web searches, stores your footprints or whatever you search or browse while using a web-browser.
The most popular web-browsers are Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari for Windows, etc.
For your information, deleting the Chrome browsing history doesn’t delete your Google search history.
Browser history and Google search history are two different things and there is a different procedure to clear Google search history.
Therefore, in short, every internet web browser recalls the list of webpages that you have visited till date.
There is another way by which browsers are not allowed to store your visited web pages and that is called Incognito Mode or Private browsing.
Users do have the option to clear their Chrome browsing history if they do not want to record their visited web pages using Chrome.
There is an option available if you want to delete all browsing history or for a specific period of time only.
