Windows 10: My history is being saved in the cloud Solved

    My history is being saved in the cloud

    Hi folks,
    I've just performed a clean install in accordance with the excellent tutorials here. When I checked my favourites my bookmarks were all there. I assume Microsoft saves my bookmarks and synchs them in when I connect to my Microsoft account, which I don't have a problem with. However, I also noticed my entire history from last week was on there also!!! How do I turn this off? I don't want every site I visit stored in the cloud.

    Alternatively don't use IE or Edge.

    I use the sync feature with Chrome myself as I want my bookmarks and my search history saved in the cloud. Sometimes I search for something at home/work and when I find myself in the other location I want to go back and look at something I found. Having my history allows that to happy.

    I can see why others might not want it though.
