Hi there,

You can delete individual entries by scrolling down the list (using
your mouse wheel or the down arrow key) and pressing the delete key on
your keyboard.

It is possible to remove all of them, and to stop them from appearing
again, but it will affect every form field on every web page you
visit. You can't stop it happening just on the Google page.

To do it in Internet Explorer:

Go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Content

Click on AutoComplete

- Remove the tick alongside forms to stop IE from remembering the entries
- Click on Clear Forms to remove all the previous entries

If you are using a different browser, let me know in a clarification
and I'll explain how to do it.

Best wishes,
