How to Delete Yahoo Toolbar History

by KR Knowlin

The Yahoo! Toolbar is a handy add-on feature that allows you to conveniently access Yahoo!'s search engine from any website. The toolbar's default setting stores your search information to save you time in the future. You can delete Yahoo!'s Toolbar history and clear all of your past search queries. You can also disable the feature so it doesn't store future searches.
