After browsing the web for a while, I want to delete my history. So I press CTRL and H keys, and click the Edit items on the blue bar at the top of the page. Then I select the checkboxes for the items I want to remove. Then I click remove selected items.

When I go into any of my open tabs, their history isn't deleted.

Without restarting the tab or the browser, is there any way to clear the history within a tab?

I also want to know how to clear just one tab's history, without needing to know all the pages that the tab had visited, then going to the history page...


Unfortunately I don't think you can clear just one tab's history, however you can easily clear history for instance of 'The Past Hour' by using Ctrl + Shift + Del

You can also easily launch a new incognito window with Ctrl + Shift + N (Pages you view in this window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close all open incognito windows.)
