With Internet Explorer, click tools on your menu, then click internet options, then you can clear your browsing history under the general tab.

I'm not on IE... Just directly on my homepage which is Yahoo... It sucks cause I have friends that come to use my PC and I'm sure they are being sneaky and look-in at what I search for.. I did try what you suggested but my whole drop down list is still there.

Here ya go!

How do I clear the search history in my toolbar?

Yahoo! Toolbar will remember your recent searches so that you can easily find the things you searched for previously. However, there are several ways you can clear the search history in the your toolbar.

If you want to remove all the entries in your search history right now, but you still want Yahoo! Toolbar to remember your searches in the future, do the following:

Click the Pencil menu.
Select "Clear Recent Searches".

If you want to save your recent searches while you're searching on the Web, but automatically clear the saved searches when you close your browser window, do the following:

Click the Pencil menu.
Select "Toolbar Options".
Select "Auto-clear recent searches when exiting IE" so there's a checkmark in the box next to it.
Click "OK".

If you want to disable the feature entirely so none of your searches are saved, do the following:

Click the Pencil menu.
Select "Toolbar Options".
Click "Remember Recent Searches" so there's not a checkmark in the box next to it.
Click "OK".

Note: Yahoo! Toolbar for Mozilla Firefox currently does not have the ability to disable the search history or automatically clear it on exit. Those features will be added in a future release.

If you've disabled the search history in Yahoo! Toolbar but are still seeing items suggested when you type, your browser is saving that information. For Internet Explorer, check your options under Tools > Internet Options > AutoFill. For Mozilla Firefox, check Tools > Options > Privacy > Saved Form Information.

I click on the pencil menu ( it's the lil yellow pencil , right?) and a list of add on or remove comes up and none of the choices are tool bar option... I did find a tool bar option on my view at the top but when I press it it goes back to the one the pencil put me on to. the list basically consist of my yahoo , baseball , football, and so on.. any other ideas?
