If you Right click the Internet Explorer icon and select properties it will bring you to a box that will let you edit the history of the explore address bar However you will lose all of the addresses in the history not just one if you clear the history In this you can also select the settings of how long to keep history IE 4.0 does not have a way within the program to do what you want Internet Explorer 5.0 does allow you to delete individual entries in the history folder by clicking on the History icon at the top and right clicking on the entry that you wish to delete You will need to upgrade to 5.0 if you want this feature.
