Microsoft's Windows operating system comes with File Explorer so that users can browse system files and folders. The same applies to the new Windows 11 operating system, although the technology giant Redmond has redesigned the file explorer.

There's a handy search feature built into the File Explorer app in the top right corner of the window that, as the name suggests, allows users to browse files and folders on the computer.

Whenever the user searches for something in File Explorer, the search is saved in the system and displayed in a drop-down menu when the user tries to search for something else. This can be a bit of an issue if you're using a shared PC or trying to browse personal or private information.

If you are looking for a solution to disable the search history feature for File Explorer in Windows 11 operating system, you have come to the right place. Here's a step-by-step guide to show you how to do it.

To do this, we will use the built-in function of the local group policy editor of the Windows operating system. This is a utility that allows users to configure Group Policy settings for a Windows PC or a group of PCs. It basically allows users to control features and functions of Windows computer.

Step 1: Open the Local Group Policy Editor on your computer. To do this, press the Windows + R keys to open the Run prompt, type “gpedit.msc” and enter it. This will open the Group Policy Editor tool.

Step 2: When it opens, navigate to User Configuration on the left menu bar and then navigate to Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer

Step 3: Now in the list of options, double click on "Disable showing recent searches in Explorer's search box".

Step 4: When a Policy Settings window loads, change the value from Default to On and then click the OK button to save the changes.

That's it. Regardless of how you search your computer with File Explorer, from now on, none of the search string histories will be saved.

If after the changes you are not able to search for data with the previously used strings or the keyboard and you want to restore functionality, proceed as described above. Just change the option from Enabled to Default in step 4 and the feature history will be saved again

How to enable or disable Privacy Sandbox in Google chrome

 Google expects the way the advertising industry works to change and will change its user tracking system. Instead of tracking users through third-party cookies, the company offers us a new FLoC method.

FLoC runs on the browser and locally analyses the online behaviour of the user. Chrome monitors users' browsing activity and assigns them to a "cohort" of other users with similar preferences and habits, and then reports that cohort to websites that damage FLoC.

This new method is quite controversial and has been disabled by several other browsers that use the Chromium engine. By default, the Privacy Sandbox trial is enabled for all Chrome users, but that doesn't mean FLoC is enabled.

If Privacy Sandbox is active, Google FLoC can be activated for you. Earlier this year, the company enabled FLoC for about 0.5% of Chrome users in regions like Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, and the United States.

Step 1: Open the Google Chrome web browser on your computer.

Step 2: Now click on the menu icon in the upper right corner and select the “Settings” option.

Step 3: In the settings, select the "Privacy & Security" option from the menu on

 the left.

Step 4: Now click on "Privacy Sandbox" and enable or disable the toggle key.

To enable the privacy sandbox feature, toggle the switch on and if you want to disable it, toggle it off. However, keep an eye on the status of the feature when the company officially releases the feature in a stable release as this may reset the option.
