Need to delete old web addresses

  Squidge 17:38 22 Apr 2003


I have been using my husbands laptop to look for hotels for a weekend away, but when I give it back to him he will be able to see where I have been looking to book which will ruin it all! Is there a way I can just delete a few addresses in the address bar without completely deleting all the sites he has ever visited? Help! Thanks!

There is, Squidge, but you'll have to edit the registry. If you feel comfortable doing that, then backup first and navigate, using the little + signs to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

Clicl on that "TypedURLs" folder and it's contents will open in the right-hand pane. Right click on the URL of the hotels in that pane and choose delete. Exit the registry, re-boot your computer and those URLs should be gone.

You can delete *all* the URLs easier than that, but that would give the game away. ;-)

PS Have a nice time away.
