How to Erase the Yahoo Search History

When you type something into the Yahoo search box, a drop-down list of past searches shows up. Yahoo doesn't save what you type, but your web browser does. The search terms are automatically saved when the AutoComplete feature is enabled. It stores data from past searches on the Web. You can delete Yahoo search history using the three most common browsers available by following these steps.
