Q&A Monday: Remove URL from Auto-complete in Chrome


I have an incorrect website address that appears in my autocomplete list every time I start typing and I always accidentally click on it.  I tried clearing my history and it’s still there, can you help me.

You need to open chrome and start typing incorrect URL until auto-complete suggestion appears. Then you can use your keyboard’s arrow keys to highlight the suggestion from the drop-down menu that will appear below the address bar.  Once highlighted press Shift+Delete keys  at the same time, and you’ll be rid of that incorrect site in the list.  Next time you type, it’ll be gone.
