Default Clear the quick search history

Unfortunately i let someone use my phone to see the thing... I usually hate doing that cause they often do something stupid... Anyway the guy searched for gibberish in the quick search. Now that gibberish is there every time I hit the magnifying glass. I've not got anything else in there because every time I search I just use the voice activated one. I'd like to be able to clean that out so that the history is either clean or contains valid searches...

Anyone have an idea how to do so? I've not been able to figure it out.

Poof done!

Wow I swear I'd looked... Must have been really tired last night when I was looking as I swear I'm not usually that daft. But I did put in a full day of work (all night) and then went to Verizon in the morning to get my storm and then played with it all day. Was totally worth putting in 8 more hours through the night so that I could play with the phone interruption free for the first day! But I was obviously less than 100% haha.

It seemed to work for me {Running 1.6} but Try this :

Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications -> Go to "Google Search (enhanced) -> Clear data

Does this work for you?

Anyone else having problems with any of the methods in this thread?

James A , Can you re-boot your phone and try again. It should show you all the applications including the ones you have downloaded and system apps like the Market etc.

It seems to be working perfectly fine for me {Running 1.6 on my HTC Magic}

Can anyone else confirm who is running 2.0 if the above method deletes the Quick search?

{If not it may be some sort of bug in 2.0 or maybe theirs another method besides having to Factory reset the phone}

Yeah search history is not deleted via this method, but thanks for showing how to view all apps (not just downloaded) :-)

How about a solution for 1.5? I did not see "search" under settings on my Eris.

On a related topic while viewing all the applications I saw a google bug reporting one. Is there a way to launch this app to provide feedback to google about things that arent working or need improvement?

The way to delete previously searched terms in the quick search application is:

Settings -- Applications -- Manage applications -- Quick Search Box

press "Clear Data"

Done!
