Non-Excel Tip

Cover Your Tracks in Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer stores a list of the websites you've visited in its History folder. This is a great convenience when you want to revisit that website you looked at last week. But it also means that anyone else with access to your computer can also see which websites you've visited.

Here's what you can do to get rid of any unwanted website history.

  • From the Tools menu, go to Internet Options.
  • Under the General tab, find the History section, and click the Clear History button.

If there are only a couple of sites that you want to remove, there's no need to wipe out everything.

  • Just click the History button (looks like a sundial) on the Internet Explorer toolbar. You'll see a list of websites displayed on the left of the screen.
  • Find the site you want to remove, right-click on its folder and select Delete.
