There is nothing more in your face than making a type-o when entering a web address in your browser.  That's because every time you start to type in the navigation bar, that type-o resurfaces thanks to autofill. Rather than clearing out all your browsing history to remove the error spelling or just try to ignore it, simply delete it.  Here’s how.  If you are using Google Chrome, start typing in a website’s address in the address bar.  When the autofill begins to populate the web address, hold down the shift and windows button, or shift and function on a Mac, and tap the delete key. You’ll use the same trick in Firefox as you did in Chrome. To delete an autofill entry, just press the Delete key on Windows or Shift + Delete on Mac. If there are several autofill address you wish to delete. Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the address and press delete. You can also selectively, click on the top checkbox, scroll to the very bottom of the listings, hold down Shift, and click on the last checkbox. Then, click on the “Delete” option in the upper-right corner.
