Edge is, from my perspective, real refresh compering to predecessor Explorer, which has been around for few decades. It is neither the time nor the place to discuss how much better Edge is then Explorer, but fact is that it gives you more flexibility and granularity. One of examples is cleansing of Edge browsing history.
Edge browsing history is divided to more options then in Explorer. So, you have more control which is always better.
Start your Edge and select three dots snippet on top right corner (Slide 1.).
Then select Settings (Slide 2.).
On Settings page select Choose what to clear (Slide 3).
On next page you will be able to select between options in order to clear all or partial browsing history. Expand options with Show more options (Slide 4. and 5.).
After you selected what to clear, choose Clear button.
