How to Delete Recent Search History on Yahoo!

Web browsers store information that you fill out in search engines, and the Yahoo search engine and toolbar are no exceptions. If more than one person uses the computer, you want to remove this information. Deleting recent search history will clear the search boxes so no one is able to see what searches were performed. Each browser has a different way to clear the history.
