While online, you visit different sites. Even if you do not have any online resource in the “Favorites”, you can find this website by referring to the history of visits and specifying the desired time period. But there are situations when you need to hide from prying information about the search on the Internet or on the sites that you visit. In such cases, you need to delete the history of visited sites on the computer. In addition, the cleaning of free space on your hard drive can speed up your computer.
