    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.
