How to completely clear Chrome / Win 10 browsing history

I have heard that it is near impossible to clear Chrome browsing history. What is the best solution? I am not against paying for a utility that will accomplish this task if it is something that takes many steps to perform manually. NOTE: I will NOT be able to reply to this question for perhaps two days so please don't get upset if I don't reply in a "timely manner".

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

One level deeper is to delete your user  profile in Chrome (you will lose all your settings in Chrome and it will start from the scratch):

1.Close out of all Google Chrome windows you might have open.
2.Navigate to the following location based on your operating system: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
3.Rename the “Default” folder to “Default old“.
4.Open Google Chrome.
