How To Delete Incorrect URLs

One of the conveniences of modern browsers is the URL suggestions that appear from your browser history as you type URLs into your address bar. But what if one of those historical URLs is incorrect?

In Internet Explorer, you’ll need to edit the Windows registry. Learn how from Raymond.cc.
