A quick way to “clear your web browsing history and data” …

The one thing I love about is computers is that I am always learning something new; even after all these years. I did not know that there is a web browser keyboard shortcut that you can use in just about any web browser that will get you quickly and precisely to the settings that you need in order to clear your browsing data (such as your browsing history; download history; tracking cookies and site data; images and files; and even stored passwords — if you opt to). It is a good idea to dump this data on a regular basis to speed up the browser (and computer) and to especially eliminate any tracking cookies or even data that may contain malware. The data your web browser collects and stores on your computer is in essence a complete and massive record of everything you do or have done while surfing the web.

So, the keyboard shortcut to bring up what you need to clear your browsing data in your web browser is as follows:

Ctrl + Shift + Delete

The screenshot below depicts what appears when you use the keyboard shortcut as indicated above. This screenshot is from the web browser, Microsoft Edge. I tested this on Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Vivaldi and the keyboard shortcut is the same on all. The dialog box that appears may be slightly different than pictured below; but, they are all very similar.
