How can I delete an URL from Chrome's Omnibox suggestions?

The URLs won't be deleted even if I clear my entire browsing history. I've also tried deleting the "History Provide Cache" file, but to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Follow the next steps:

  • Clear the omnibar
  • Start writing the address that gives you the unwanted history item
  • As soon as the history item apears below the omnibar use the down arrow to select it
  • Press Shift+Del (or Fn+Shift+Del if on a Mac)

No. It is Shift + Del. Look at the edit I've made. – criziot Jun 21 '12 at 1:42
