Show and Hide History Panel in Windows 10 Calculator
Edited by Eng, DeleteQnA, Greyhorn
Windows 10 comes with a builtin calculator, that can be in so many modes, like Standard, Scientific, Programmer, Date calculation. When first used, it will be in the Standard mode. One of the new features of this calculator is the "History", which is actually not editable (one huge cons!). "Microsoft", please make it editable, it would be a very helpful feature! If you have ever found yourself stuck with the "History Panel" showing all the time, and you do not know how to get rid of it or hide it, this article is the key.
Enable History Panel
- 5Now if we drag the right side of the "Calculator" window, to enlarge it, the "History Panel" showed earlier on top of the Calculator Numeric Pad will shift aside and will show side by side with the Calculator main panel.
- p.s., you have to drag to enlarge to a certain size before it shifts, keep dragging until the "History Panel" shifts aside.
Disable / Hide History panel
- 2Micrososft support, I was certain that there should be a way, but could not find it, so I left it be, with that "History Panel" on the side.Well, searched the Web, Microsoft help, nothing!
- 4Wow, that was so easy. Yet I am sure a lot of you out there have faced a similar issue as I did.Dragging to make it smaller to a certain size did the trick!
Tips and Tricks
- There is a very useful feature on the "Calculator", named "CONVERTER", we can reach it by clicking on the 3lines icon, showing on top left corner, enjoy it.
Questions and Answers
Deleting Memory Function from Windows 10 Calculator?
Your resizing trick, didn't work for me, it just made the History smaller but didn't delete it. Perhaps I'm confusing the History with the Memory, because Memory tells me after I do that that there's no Memory yet. I want them both gone, out of here, I can't even use my calculator in this condition. Got any additional ideas. I know better than calling those morons in Microsoft Support.. . Thanks for any help you can give,. . John. I have done exactly what was recommended, scrunching the calculator down to a little life-size pocket calculator about 3 inches wide and 5 inches tall on my monitor's screen, but it's still showing me the problem I was running, 13.79 ÷ 8.95=1.540782122905028, but I ran that by mistake and really need to multiply 8.95 by 122%, only I can't get rid of that needlessly more complex earlier problem. I have tried: I told you all you need to know, all that I can given the simplicity of what I'm asking for help on. I think it was caused by: Microsoft's brain dead software engineers. Now your pop-up is telling me my explanation is too short, obviously trying to make me feel like an idiot when it's making one out of itself. You know everything I can tell you about this very simple problem, and I am neither well enough versed in code writing to even hazard a wild guess what error the designers of the calculator made. In fact, I am both 67 years old and disabled and right now seriously considering filing a claim of age and disability discrimination over having to type this ridiculous message just because you have succumbed to the new world where computers are still delegated tasks for which they are totally ill-suited, having neither the perspective nor judgment to perform such task properly, leaving us unable to do anything about it but bear it and go look for another way. About the only glimmer of hope we might someday have would be hearing "I'M BAAAACK!" spoken with a pronounced Austrian accent.
Answer: When you see the history that you do not want, or want to clear, SIMPLY, right click on it with the mouse, an option of delete will show, and you can select it to delete that history. Regards.
