Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Clear history and other website data, part of Learning the Microsoft Edge Browser.
- [Instructor] Microsoft Edge, like most browsers,…stores a lot of data that could be considered…personal, private information…as we've discussed in other movies in this chapter.…For example, we've seen that Edge stores…a history of the sites you visited,…it caches data from these sites…to make them load more quickly when you return to them,…the websites themselves store cookies in Edge…and Edge also contains any passwords…that you may have stored.…So in this movie, we'll take a look at how you can wipe…any or all of this data…and how you can set up Edge to limit what data it stores.…First, let's open up the hub and under the History tab,…we can see a list of all the sites…we've been visiting in Edge…and they're listed chronologically…with the most recently visited sites at the top.…
Now, for whatever reason,…there may be times when you want to remove…certain sites from this list.…Now, the History panel is here to make it easy for you…to return to the sites you visited…which can really come in handy for times…when you remember reading a piece of information somewhere…
