Chrome – How to delete address bar suggestions


You know when you type something into the address bar, and it comes up with suggestions and sites you have visited, is there any way to delete those?

Best Answer

Highlight the entry and:

  • Shift+Delete on a PC
  • Shift+FN+Delete a Mac

To disable autocomplete in general

  • open the Chrome Settings
  • Show advanced settings (at the bottom)
  • Under Privacy, uncheck
    • "Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar."
    • use a prediction service to load pages more quickly

The completions will still appear as dropdown items and you can arrow down to select them - if you want to, but they won't be automatically applied.
