How to Clear Specific Cookies in Microsoft Edge


Sometimes you don’t want to delete all your cookies and browsing history. Just cookies from one site. Here’s how to do it in Microsoft Edge.

We have shown you how to delete cookies and browsing history data from Microsoft Edge. But sometimes, you don’t want to clear all of the cookies. There can be instances when you want to clear them for a specific site only. For example, while it’s great to use a VPN, a site I visit a lot, I thought that I was still in Canada after disconnecting it.

That’s just one scenario, but whatever the reason, you need to clear cookies for just one (or two) sites. The process is fairly similar to doing it in Google Chome, but I figured it deserved its own how-to tutorial for Edge users.

    Good info, but why can’t I delete all the cookies from When I try to delete them there is one cookie that says was removed, but it still appears. No matter how many times I say remove it, it does not disappear.
