How can I clear the sharing history in Windows 8?

For example I was doing a webcast, when I shared a picture, it showed the latest email recipients I sent. This is unacceptable for privacy reasons.


Here's how to clear your previous history:

Windows 8: Clear Previous Searches

  1. Move your mouse to the bottom right of the screen then move it up to access the Charms bar. Click Settings.
  2. Choose More PC settings.
  3. When the PC settings screen appears, choose the Search section from the left side.
  4. The History section can be found at the top of the screen. This section allows you to Delete history or turn the history feature off.
  5. When you click Delete history, a small message will appear next to the button to tell you that all previous search keywords have been deleted.
  6. Using the slider, you can completely disable the system’s remembrance of these search terms. If you turn the History feature off, the Delete history button will be grayed out too.
