Why Can I NOT Keep My Internet Explorer "DELETE HISTORY ON EXIT" Set RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok I have been fighting this every since Windows 8.0 and NO success.  Its like Microsoft coded I.E. to still hold onto all of my history and cache even though I have selected "Delete on exit".  Also the Advance setting where it caches sites files etc, NEVER deletes.   I can perform the procedure, then close out.  Turn off my computer and when I am back into IE.  I get the "previous browser session closed yada yada.... do you wish to restore"..         Sure enough, when I 'restore' everything I 'deleted' still there.

    and no, I didn't "cold-shut down' the computer where programs were still running (unless it is intentional that i.e. is still running even after ive closed and deleted history MANUALLY over and again)

    Is there a better "3rd" party browser to use ?
