    You can tick the entries one by one and then click Remove Selected Items, or click Clear Browsing Data.
    Once you do either one of those two, a new window will open. In the new window, you'll have several options. You can obliterate certain items from the past hour, the past day, the past week, the last 4 weeks or the beginning of time. If you click the beginning of time, it will clear the history since the installation of the Google Chrome web browser.

    Next, tick all of the items you wish to delete.
    For example, I'm going to delete browsing history, download history, and cookies and other site and plug-in data. On the other hand, I want to keep passwords, autofill data, hosted app data and content licenses.
