How can I clean up my computer history

Cleaning the Computer history (searched items, recently opened documents & files etc.) is sometimes important to protect your privacy. To clean the history of your computer :

1) Go to Start--> Run--> then type "recent". This will open a window containing shortcut of all the recent files that had been accessed. Select all and Shift+Delete those files. Deleting these files doesn't affect your original files, so don't worry about it.

2) Go to Start--> Run--> then type "%temp%". The opened window will show all the temp files. Delete those files and then from recycle bin too. Don't worry if a some files can't be deleted. These files will be left because your Operating System is using them.

3) Now restart the OS and your history is cleaned up.
