Erase browsing history and clear cookies in Opera

As time passes, and you visit websites in the Opera web browser, "tracks" will start accumulating in the form of visited URLs in the address bar, cookies saved on your computer, and copies of cached web browsers stored on your PC or Mac. In this tutorial, we will show you how to erase cookies and clear your web browsing history in Opera, in just a few clicks, and explain the modular settings that enable you to selectively delete portions of your browsing history.

Overview of the "Delete Private Data" feature in Opera

Once you are inside Opera, click on the "Tools" menu, and select "Delete Private Data", and you'll see a dialog open. Click on the "Detailed Options" dropdown button, and you'll gain access to more settings, all explained below this screenshot:

Each of the checkbox that is checked means that the corresponding data will be deleted; follow carefully the explanations below to choose which portion of your history or cookies should be deleted, and which should be kept intact.

Once you have checked and unchecked the checkboxes you want, click on the "Delete" button: Opera will start erasing your browsing history, clear the cookie cache, and/or any other private data option you have selected. Depending on your computer speed, the number of websites remembered by Opera, the cache size (all of which can be customized to your liking), the operation may take a while to complete.

As a piece of side information, know that you can configure your history and cookie handling settings from Opera by accessing the Preferences (go to "Tools > Preferences" on Windows or Linux, or go to "Opera > Preferences" on Mac OS X). Then, examine and customize these options under the "Advanced" tab by selecting "History" or "Cookies" on the left hand side!
