Is there a way to delete history selectively?
Like when I type, IE shows me matching URLS. Here I would like to delete few of them. (In outlook this works perfectly when address match is performed. I can delete the address, which I dont want to see in matched addressed.)

I know one method is deleting entries from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs, but I dont prefer to edit registry and am looking for better way to do this.

IE itself doesn't provide a mechanism to selectively delete the typed URLs. You'll either have to write a program yourself to do this, or use someone else's program. Here's one that lets you do what you're wanting: http://www.585soft.com/IEHistoryX.asp, although it isn't free.

And, I agree - Microsoft *should* let you press 'delete' on an entry to remove it, just as you can in Outlook.
