Default Deleting individual URL's in History

I hope this is the right subforum.


I did an internet search and I thought I found something in the registry, but the address -- listed for Windows Vista, I did not find in regedit.

So, in the address bar where you type URL's -- I want to manually remove addresses -- not delete the whole thing, which Internet Options does.

I'm trying to find where Windows Vista stores that in the registry, or at least some folder where I can delete URL's as I choose.

Anybody know where the heck it is?

Open IE
Press CTRL + H
Right click on the site (probably a few listings) and click Delete

Thank you, that does work. :-)

But it won't let me select multiple entries and every time I delete something, it disappears and I have to do CTRL+H again. Is there anyway to select multiple items for deletion?

Well, I deleted one site in particular, but when I type it up in the address bar, it still pops up.

I also deleted it from:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

But it's still there. How do I get rid of it without clearing all typed addresses?
