How to Delete Google Chrome History

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


How can  I  delete Google Chrome search history? I found the wrench icon on the right side of the address bar and went to tools. That wasn’t right. I finally saw the History sect and saw  the list of addresses I’ve visited, but where do I get them? Am I missing something?
