View and Delete Browsing History in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge like all the main internet browsers records by default our browsing history. it includes the sites that you visited, the form data and your downloaded files.

All this information is the track of our activity and can be useful to remember previous visited pages.

But specially when we share a device: PC, computer, laptop or mobile, it is important to keep our privacy data safe and away from others.

In Microsoft Edge is very easy to view, manage and delete our history and activity.

  4. Once we click on the button, we can see all the categories of information that can be deleted from the browser. Among those that we find the complete browsing history, the cookies and saved data, the data and files in cache, the tabs that have been reserved recently closed.


They can also be deleted, although they are not selected by default, download history, form data, passwords and so on up to ten different parameters that Microsoft collects from our Edge activity.


As you can see it's quite easy to erase the history. And especially customisable, thanks to the erase options that this offers us at all times. In this way we will always feel safe after navigating. Being able to activate even in the same screen the automatic deletion of all the information after having closed the Edge browser.


If we want to open a private browser window that will not store our activity by default we can use the option New InPrivate Window.
