Your Internet browser stores a record of your history--all the activities you conduct on the Internet. Your history is ordered by date and time so you can see when you visited each website in your history. This can be advantageous in some situations, but if you share a computer with other users, it might not be.

If you want to delete the history for a certain period of time, you can do so and still keep the rest of your history.

Launch Internet Explorer. Click on “View” from the horizontal navigation menu at the top of the window.

Scroll to “Explorer Bars” and click “History.” A pane pops up on the left of your window displaying your history.
