chrome removHow to Delete a Bookmark in Chromee suggested url

After some time searching for a number of things in your browser, you may find that your browsers’ autosuggest is tossing you either websites that you visited once and never will again or URLs that you have mistyped. You can delete all the autosuggested choices, but if you merely delete the unwanted ones, that can narrow down your experience on your browser to what you need.

Below are the ways that you can delete individual or multiple autocomplete URLs in the address bar and the settings. You will also find ways to delete all of the autocomplete URLs and disable the autocomplete feature completely. There will be directions for Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.

Individual URLs:

1. Begin to type the URL that you want to delete in your browser.

2. When the site that you would like to delete is seen in the drop-down options, use the arrow keys to move in that list.
