Help with IE8

Is there a way to get I8 to delete your browsing history but not delete everything like cookies. When it deletes cookies I lose all my login information and have to login again everytime. Thanks

Hello Isufrontier,

You could use Method One in the tutorial below to delete the IE8 browsing history and uncheck the ones you do not want to delete.

Hope this helps,

Yeah, it would be nice if it would delete the same thing that you have checked in the "Delete Browsing History" settings window.

Instead of deleting Browsing History through IE options, do it via CCleaner. It has an option of excluding cookies you want to retain from the cleanup.
Also, if you want to retain cookies for automatic login to websites, consider using an app like RoboForm. Its an excellent password manager that frees you from having to remember passwords and isnt too expensive either.
