I've got a couple of URL autocomplete suggestions where Chrome suggests the wrong URL consistently.

How can I delete the incorrect entry from the address bar's suggestion list? The page I want shows up too but it's never the first result.

When the suggestion loads up, navigate to the URL suggestion you want to delete using or keys on keyboard and press Shift + Delete, it removes the wrong entry.

For Mac, it's Shift + fn +Delete
