How to Delete Search Suggestions from YouTube

YouTube is the popular online video viewing service. Millions of users access its library of videos every day, and because its library is so vast, it generates search suggestions based upon popular searches when you begin typing a search in the YouTube search bar. If you do not want to view the search suggestions, though, you can easily remove search suggestions from YouTube.
