i dont want bing logging browser history

I don't have anything to hide but deleting bing history in the edge browser is a pain in the *.

To delete bing history you have to log into your account then delete the history , this is 1 thing that ccleaner cant do.

I have googled how to stop bing logging browsing history but I could not do it.

It said open browser , open bing search box then click on the gear icon. The screens that came up after I clicked the gear icon were nothing like the ones shown in the article I was reading.

I don't use outlook so I could delete that from my Microsoft account but what will happen if I delete the Microsoft account from my pc.

Will it stop me using my gmail address on my tablet , on my pc (thunderbird mail , and will it also stop me using my google play account on my tablet.

What has Outlook got to do with this? Bing is Microsoft's search engine.

Click here and follow the prompts.

You can disable the search history feature on the Bing homepage, but you'll need to remember that if you clear your cookie cache Bing will start recording your history again.

my Microsoft account says my gmail address is tagged to it.

thanks FE , I saw that screen shot on a walkthrough telling you how to delete history but I can work out how to bring up the screen shot showing " stop bing from tracking history"

This is the walkthrough I looked at , the 3rd screenshot shows a red circle round turn off but this is the screen shot I cant find , don't know what op sys the screenshots are from but I am on windows 10 using edge.

Atter opening Settings: Did you select/click on 'History' on the left, like it tells you to.

As you've already logged in to your account you should have seen this suggestion,

Try using Edge with InPrivate mode. See if it actually stops Bing recording search history as suggested in the document.

Second thoughts - as one extension I use doesn't work in InPrivate mode. Don't know if any will. Try another browser :(

You could try using DuckDuckGo, they say on their website that they do not track you at all.
