Delete Bing Search History in the Cloud

Windows Search lets you search from your taskbar to find what you’re looking for, whether it’s on your device, in the cloud, or on the web.

Windows Search can personalize your search results by including your content from OneDrive, SharePoint, Outlook, Bing, and other services.

If you turn on the Microsoft account setting for Cloud content search, Windows Search will show results from items in your personal OneDrive, Outlook, and other Microsoft services. If you search the web or get web search suggestions with Windows Search, Bing will personalize your results. You can also earn Microsoft Rewards points when you search with Bing in the Windows search box. Windows Search can save and use your web search history with your Microsoft account so you can get more relevant web search results and suggestions.

If you turn on the Work or School account setting for Cloud content search, Windows Search will show results from OneDrive for Business, Outlook, SharePoint, and more from Microsoft Search. Windows Search saves your Microsoft Search history to your work or school account. To view the history associated with your work or school account go to the Bing Search History page and sign in using your work or school account.

This tutorial will show you how to delete your Bing search history associated with your Microsoft account in the cloud on Windows 11 device.

How to Enable or Disable Cloud Optimized Taskbars in Windows 10

Windows 10 20H2 now includes cloud optimized content to personalize the taskbar for users.

For example:

  • If you linked an Android phone to your Windows 10 PC, the Phone app will automatically be pinned to the taskbar.
  • If you use an Xbox Live account in Windows 10, the Xbox app will automatically be pinned to the taskbar.

The cloud optimized content on taskbars is only applied to new accounts, accounts signing in for the first time, or with a clean install of Windows 10 20H2.

The cloud optimized content on taskbars does not get applied to any existing accounts.
