I'd like to clear Gmail search history. I saw this video, and thought it would help me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReYtFia-uCU
But it doesn't. The item in question I want to delete doesn't have the clock icon nor an "X" next to it. It's got a magnifying glass. But deleting all of my google history from all time, and stopping Activity History, has not helped.
Please note: you can only delete the searches that you created yourself.
System suggested searches can not be removed.
The magnifying glass to the left of the search term that you mention means that it is a system generated search therefore cannot be deleted.
Only the ones that you created will carry the little clock icon to the left followed by the
X sign on the right.
