    I have a samsung moment and I can't for the life of me figure out how to delete my search history in the google widget. I've tried deleting the cache and cookies and form data, but it doesn't clear it!

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. Okay, go on the browser and then push menu. Select more and go to the last option ,settings, scroll down to Privacy settings and click clear history!! There you go! happened to me to.

    That's actually a great app. Alas, it still doesn't delete my search history on my google widget. =[

    Ok if you mean the drop down history that shows up. If you bring up search then click the g icon and change to web. Then hit menu button and select google search it will let you deselect personal history

    Yeah, it's the drop down history that shows recent searches. I don't know what G icon you're talking about, but I did go to the google page and go to settings and clear settings and set it to not save my searches. But no luck. Of course. :mad:

    can you go into settings>applications>and find the widget and clear cache in there? I don't have my droid so I can't check.

    That seemed like it would work! I found the google search widget, but I couldn't clear the cache. There was a button to, but it wasn't clickable.

    I was able to do it on my Samsung Moment. From the home screen click on menu/settings, scroll down to search and click "Clear search shortcuts"

    That's it, it should be clear

    Go to "Settings"

    Click on "Search"

    Click on "Clear search shortcuts"

    This should be done regularly to speed up your search functionality, when it stores the history it has to load it everytime you launch search.

    i had the same troubles and i found the solution,
    SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS>GOOGLE SEARCH (which is what you want to clear)> and just press clear data! :cool:
  16. I think you can go to settings to clean the data

    to erase the list of searches you've performed in google on your samsung android, do the following:

    1. click on the google textbox
    2. click on the menu button (far left)
    3. select search settings
    4. select Clear shortcuts
