Delete IE 10 Metro Browsing History in Windows 8 [How to]

Can we delete or remove browsing history in IE 10 Metro?

Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10) is the first Windows 8 metro compatible browser. Mozilla and Google, creators of other popular desktop browsers Firefox and Chrome are also said to be working for their Metro browsers but no details are available so far. Microsoft made IE 10 especially for touch friendly devices and using it would be an awesome experience on tablets. I am sure that once the Windows 8 tablet is ready, which is anticipated in later this year, users can fully utilize the capabilities of Windows 8 and the metro apps. Latest news / rumors suggests a Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo by October this year.

Like Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10) is also in beta stage and I think it currently lacks some key features. As a power user I really feel the lack of add-on compatibility in IE 10 metro. I badly miss the service of some of my favorite add-ons on IE 10 such as Web of Trust (WOT), Alexa, and LastPass which I use for years. But a ‘casual’ internet user may not find much difficulty in using IE 10 metro.
