can be used to delete individual URLs or for clearing all of IE's Address Bar history.
These URL addresses are
maintained in the Windows Registry and can be edited using a Registry
editor. However, one is generally cautioned that a miscue with a
Registry editor could render one's system inoperable.
Additionally, the Value names for the URL entries must be named
consecutively (url1, url2, url3,...).
EditURLs provides an easy to user interface to accomplish editing of
the "Typed URLs" in the Windows Registry and maintain the required
consecutive Value names.
In addition to simple
editing and deletion of individual "Typed URLs", EditURLs provides
a function for deleting all of the URLs.
Another feature that many
users find convenient is the capability to restore a saved copy of the "Typed URLs".
That is, the user can maintain his/her personal set of
"Typed URLs" in a Master set for restoring at the click of a button.
Recent additions include a function for Sorting the URLs and 'up' -
'down' buttons for manual reordering the URLs.
EditURLs does not contain any 'ad-ware' or 'call-home' functions.
Track Cleaning / Footprint
For those of you that are evaluating EditURLs
as a convenient means to clean up tracks, you need to be aware that
the tracks you have seen in the URL Address Dropdown List is only the
tip of a very large iceberg.
To see more of the tracks on your system, bring up the
"Internet Options" panel and select the "Settings"
button within the "Temporary Internet Files" section.
Then select the "View Files" button. Browse through this
list of Cookies and Cache files after you have done some browsing and
you may be shocked at the information revealed just by the full URL
addresses. Sometimes the addresses and Cookie names are just as
revealing as the actual Web page.
These are considered to be "tracks" or "footprints" which anyone using your computer can see with only a few mouse clicks.
EditURLs now contains a brief demo that you can use to
display these files.
If you are interested in a good Track Cleaner, please
download and evaluate PurgeIE, our primary ShareWare
product. PurgeIE is also known as "Purge Cache,
Cookies and Tracks for Internet Explorer". Some
insist on calling it "Purge IE". It has
received the coveted 5-Star Award from Ziff-Davis's ZDnet.
As the full name implies, PurgeIE can be used
to clean up your Cache files and your Cookies as well as cleaning up
PurgeIE can be used for controlling the Cache based on time-since-last-use for those who are not
interested in track cleaning but are interested in efficiency, etc...
