Clear Gmail Search History on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to clear the search history in the Gmail application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up. Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen. There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Gmail application. There is a Gmail icon, which is an envelope with a red 'M', and underneath it says the word "Gmail". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.
To do that, we need to tap the icon in the top left-hand corner. There are 3 horizontal lines. This will open up a menu.
We want to scroll down and tap on "Settings".
Tap on the first option, "General settings".
In this section, we want to tap the 3 vertical dots in the top right-hand corner. This will open up the menu.
Tap on "Clear search history". A confirmation box will appear.
It says, "Clear search history? All of the searches that you've previously performed will be removed." Tap "CLEAR" to continue, or "CANCEL" to go back.
If we tap "CLEAR" it will say "Search history cleared" at the bottom. We have successfully completed our task.
This concludes the tutorial on how to clear the search history in Gmail.
