Delete Browsing History In One Step

Up until Internet explorer 7, deleting various areas of Internet Explorer's history has required multiple steps.... We deleted cookies via one window, history via another, cache via another, password and form data via another.

Internet Explorer 7 introduces a "one stop shop". We are now able to delete Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, History, Form Data and Password from the one window.

As you can see from the screenshot below, we can choose to delete specific information types, or all types at the same time.
Deleting Form data will also delete the Address Bar history (that is, data stored in the registry under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs)

In the past, if Internet Explorer's cache of Temporary Internet Files was very large, we were stuck waiting for what could be an extended period of time for the deletion process to finish, unable to do anything else in Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer 7 allows us to cancel deletion if things are taking too long. But it is recommended that you allow windows to complete its task rather than revoking what we asked windows to do.
