remove single entry with typo from history

  • as I was browsing, I entered www.b into the address bar and pressed return since I'm used to autocomplete and I wanted to go to bing, the search engine I started using when google went big brother. Unfortunately when I hit return, I also bumped the backslash key. Now when I try to go to bing, autocomplete shows www.b
    I've gone into history to try to selectively remove the entry, but havent found it. I don't want to delete my entire history.

  • Stating the version of Opera that you are using can really help others decide what advice to offer you to help sort your problem out, if possible.

  • In any version, he should be able to find it in the history and remove it there. In Opera 12.x, you probably would want to remove it from your typed-in history as well (separate from your visited history) - you do that by using the keyboard to highlight it in the dropdown, then press Del.

  • Shift + delete should delete the suggestion, but it's seems to be broken on mac. I logged a bug internally, follow our blog should be fixed some time soon.

  • I have the same issues on the Opera Beta version, on Windows. Shift+Delete doesn't seem to delete the entries.
