Delete single entries in IE(7)'s URL history

Hi experts,

Can somebody tell me if it is possible to delete single entries out of the URL history.
So when I start typing an address in the address bar I see appearing some (matching) URL's I previously visited.
Can I select one and delete it somehow out of the list?
I thought I read somewhere it's possible.
I'm using IE7.

Thanks for your time.

Hi zzynx,

Open history pane (CTRL + H) and delete (DEL key) the items you wish to remove

You can also use a simple app like

Cheers!

You can delete it from the registry.
Start > Run > type

regedit

then navigate to this key,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

On the right hand side just select the url you want to delete.

As sunnycoder said, bring up the history pane. Either click on the item (which will reload the page) or arrow down so the item is highlighted and press the delete key on your keyboard.

If you use the option to arrow down to it, rather than click with the mouse, it just means it won't load that page again (this may or may not be important to you).

@all: Thanks for your trying to help

@rpggamergirl: your comment is a good try, but it contains absolutely not all typed url's
(I give you 20 points to show my appreciation in trying to help)

@sunnycoder:
Deleting items in IE's history pane is only possible on website base and I needed it more detailed (some subitems should stay some should stay on a per website base)

But I installed the IE privacy keeper tool and that one lets me delete the subitems in an explorer window.
So you get the rest of the points.

@mfteal: I don't see any "arrow down"

Thanks
