I really want to clear my browsing history in Chrome on W10.  But it won't do it.
did you:
open settings
scroll to bottom and click advanced
under privacy and security click on "clear browsing data"
select time range and items to be deleted
click "clear data"
done

Yes.  I was able to clear the Chrome history from someone's else's W10 computer.  But, not this laptop.  Others online were also having difficulty.  It just kept timing and timing, over 24 hours, even if I just selected to clear the last 24 hours' history.

I am using a different browser now.  Because cookies were building up and things were timing too much.  I don't like certain cookies generating certain ads after I research traumatic topics.  Anyhow, I appreciate your step-by-step instructions  :).

Did the government try out its internet kill switch yesterday?

I found it amusing that NEXT users weren’t able to unlock their doors, turn on their air conditioners or use their baby monitors yesterday. Convenience seems to obliviate sense.

That was part of the big Google services outage yesterday:

If there was any outage, it must have been short.  I was off and on all day and night.
