How to Manually Delete Recent Searches

The Bing, Ask.com and Dogpile search engines each display a list of your recent searches on their results pages. This feature is intended to be helpful by allowing you easy access to frequently used queries, but it also shows your search history to anyone with access to your computer or Web browser. However, each site gives you the ability to manually delete this list of recent searches.
