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 the incorrect URL until the 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 the Shift+Delete keys at the same time, and you’ll be rid of that incorrect site in the list.  The next time you type, it’ll be gone.
