Chrome – URL Box Auto Complete – Removing An Entry


Throughout the day, I use WordPress quite a bit.

My browser of choice is Chrome.

As I access WordPress via the Chrome Address Bar and start entering the targeted WordPress URL, it begins offering previously accessed URLs that begin with WordPress.

Unfortunately, it is so easy to accept auto-suggested entries and be taken to unintended previous posts.

Removing Selected Address Bar Entries


Here are some of the available options for reviewing auto-suggested URL entries:-

  1. Chrome Address Bar
  2. Chrome History
