If you frequently “clear browsing data” in Edge, Microsoft soon makes it quicker for you to open the dialog with the mouse in the Edge browser.
Micorsoft Edge allows the deletion of browsing history, cookies, and other data.
For that, an average user needs to open the History hub (Ctrl+H) in Edge and click the three-dot button, and select “clear browsing data”. From that dialog, you can select, the time range to wipe data from the “last hour” to “All time”.
Do note this clears your data from devices signed into Edge, you may need to sign into websites against if you’ve chosen to delete cookies also.
Microsoft Edge adds a Clear browsing data icon to History Hub
Microsoft has added a “trash” icon to the History hub without needing to click on the 3-dot menu. This saves time and effor to open a clear browsing data dialog
If you’re a keyboard junkie, the fastest way to bring up the dialog is by using Ctrl+Shift+Del. But Microsoft has thought about users using the option History layout and added a Clear browsing data icon straight to the pane on top.
The Trash icon is being tested in Edge 116 Canary on select insiders via controlled rollouts. So you may not be able to see and use it right now.
