Once you have seen the page or website you want to delete. Right click and click on “delete page”. I would not prefer this method because some limits are sets. You would not be able to a search bar here.
A preferable method would be to just use the following hotkeys. Ctrl+H and this will open your history list on the left-hand side of your browser. You would also be provided with a search bar.
