JSI Tip 5183. How do I clear Internet Explorer's history of typed URLs?

The standard way to clear Internet Explorer's history of types URLs is to use Internet Options / General Tab / Clear History / Yes / OK.

You can also use a TypedURLs.reg file:

1. Copy and paste the following to a TypedURLs.reg file:


\[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs\]

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs\]

2. Run Regedit /s <Folder_Path>\TypedURLs.reg
