    Hello guys

    I would like to ask if any idea how to delete some specific URLs from the brower address bar?
    I know the steps how to delet and clear all the history, but this option will delete all cookies and some set options,
    I need how to delete some specified unwanted visited websites addresses only,

    many thanks in advance,

    Try THIS. As far as I know, it's the only way.

    To open the Registry Editor, click Start > Run > type regedit

    momtaz, think about this, where do you think the computer would store information of this type?

    the registery is where windows and it's aplications store much of the customisation information for your computer.

    If the method that I have sudjusted has not worked then folow the instructions that Phantom010 has posted.

    Alternativly you could install FireFox and use the private browsing feature when visiting sites that you do not want other users to know about

    Firefox is free, here is the link:

    Phantom010 has given you a very clear and specific answer. If you do not wish to click on the link he's provided and read the instructions there in the article "Delete a specific URL at the Internet Explorer Address Bar History," then we can close this thread since a reply from anyone cannot get much more specific and clear than that. If you do not wish to read the article provided, that's fine, but please do not continue to insult those who are trying to give you the answer you are looking for.

    If you are done here, then please click the "solved" button at the top left of the thread.

    momtaz, the replies you are getting are NOT nonsense, they actually are giving you the method to this if you have clicked the link as being instructed to do so.

    Have you clicked on Phantom's link(click on the underlined word THIS) and it will take you the complete instructions.

    momtaz, Phantom's link spells out what you need to do. If you're afraid of editing the registry then go to the link below and you'll find programs to dowload which can accomplish wjat you want to do.

    If this is something that concerned you, you did not say so, but rather simply dismissed it as "nonsense." A better approach would have been to ask what the link contained, rather than casting insults on the poster. Had you asked about your concerns politely, we would have been happy to have explained the link and that posting the link in that manner was common usage on forums in general.

    Had you gone to the linked page, you would have seen that because of copyrights, Phantom could not simply copy and paste the instructions here, that website forbade doing so; therefore the only thing possible was to link to that page.

    Thread closed.
