As you browse the Internet, each of the items you view are saved locally on your hard disk drive. This helps web pages you visit frequently load faster by loading the files from you hard disk drive instead of having to downloading the web page again.

If you have internet explorer 7, go to Tools then select Internet Options then under Browsing History there should be a button labeled Delete. Click on it, this should take care of the temporary files saved under your browsing history.

If you have Internet Explorer 8, check the upper right part of the browser window and look for the Safety menu then click Delete Browsing History. Do not select Preserve Favorites website data and choose Temporary Internet files, Cookies and History. Hit Delete. If you have Internet Explorer 6, click on Tools choose Internet Options.

Yes, this is true. All webpages you have visited are saved in your computer's Internet Explorer hard drive. These are called cache files, cookies, forms data or simple a bit of information to remember website you previously visited for faster browsing.

However, if the web browser saved too much cached files, it will definitely slow down the Internet browsing. So, deleting those bits of information is needed to get the Internet browsing back more faster.

Go to Tools, Internet Options
Click on the Delete button
Check all the boxes, cached, forms data, password, history and cookies
If all boxes are check, you may click on the Delete all button
These clear all the browsing history

Another step is to open your Browser
Go to Safety in the upper right
Then click on Browsing History
This will let you delete all history

A short way to delete browsing history is to press the Ctrl + Shift + Delete button. This clear all browsing history.
