I do NOT mean Internet Explorer.
I am talking about the address toolbar that is available again (used to be in XP but was removed in SP3 I think) in Windows 7.
This history is also in the drop downs of other Windows Explorer Windows. I would like to remove specific entries, specifically ones I typed wrong.
CCleaner does not remove this history.
I'm hoping there is an easier way to do it without editing the registry.
