Windows 7: Delete Recently Typed in Address Bar

Delete Recently Typed in Address Bar

Hi there, I will attach two images and in the second image you will see an 'Internet or network address:' bar and I was wondering if you could clear the recently typed as when I press the drop down it comes up with the addresses of recently used connections which I do not want there. Hope there is a solution, thanks

Hi Tryphona.

It does say that "Type the address...", have you checked if you can select the options from the drop down list and delete them?

Cheers, Boris

There is an option to delete, however that just deletes the address you've entered but still keeps it on the drop down list so it doesn't actually delete it from its memory

I think that you can manually delete them from here:
Code:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\PublishingWizard\AddNetworkPlace\AddNetPlace\LocationMRU
I cannot test.

If mapped drive list is of interest, clear those from here:
Code:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Map Network Drive MRU
