    It is one of these icons that we now need, to open up the Applications folder.
    To do that, we need this icon at the bottom of the home screen, in the middle. It looks like a grid, made up of white dots. Press down on this icon to open up our Apps folder.

    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application.
    Mine is located here. We can see the Google Chrome icon, which is a circle made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Chrome". Our Google Chrome application may be in different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to find it. Once we've done that, press down on it, to enter the application. In this video tutorial, we want to learn how to view and clear the browsing history of this application.

    Our history is very short.
    It's only from one day because we have cleared it recently. Normally, all of the information will be organized by date. Here, it says, "Today - Tuesday, 30 June 2015." If we have a longer browsing history than this, we will be able to see our browsing history organized by date. It's very useful if we are trying to find something from a particular day. There are two ways to clear our browsing history.

    The first way is to delete individual websites.
    We can see here that each website has its own section. To the right of each one, there is an "X" icon. This will allow us to delete individual websites or pieces of our browsing history. If we wanted to keep our browsing history and delete individual websites, we could do that. Press down on the "X" and the website will be deleted.

    It says, "Clear browsing data:
    Browsing history, Cache, Cookies, site data, Saved passwords, Autofill data." These are the different areas that we can clear. The top three are selected because they have a blue box with a white check inside. The bottom two options are not selected, and will not be cleared since their boxes are empty. If we want to select or deselect any of these options, just press down on the box. If it's blue with a white check inside, then we have selected it. If the box is empty, then we have deselected it. Make the choice that is right for us.

    We can go back by pressing the Back arrow at the bottom left corner of the screen.
    If we look in the "History" section, it will still show our browsing history there, but that's because it hasn't been refreshed yet.
