    The Microsoft solution you like appears to be the same as the one I proposed by changing the setting in Group Policy
    The Group Policy setting defines the number of days before items are removed from history, in which the minimum is one day.
    This does not allow one to delete the history immediately but rather enables the history be cleared every 24hrs automatically.
    Again, the objective is to find a way to delete now in the same manner as the "Clear history" button functioned in previous Windows OS versions.

    It appears I might have discovered a little "chink in the armour" as this method doesn't seem to work IF you have any detections listed in the protection history from the controlled folder access feature... if enabled.
