Google Search

Postby jonbar.1 » Mon Jul 26, 2021 10:20 am

My wife is having a problem with her Google Searches:
She is using Google via Chrome browser on a Galaxy Tab.
When she taps the search box a list of previous/recent searches appears ( she finds this useful )
Each item in the list has a grey "Clock" icon to the left and a "X" on the extreme right. Occasionally she deletes any unwanted items from the list by selecting the "X"; then the item disappears.
Just recently action has stopped working. When she selects the "X" a dialogue -box appears saying:
" You searched for this before.
Deleting (example) from your history will permanently remove
it from your account across all
your devices "
When she selects the option "Delete" nothing happens! Can anyone help?
( if she uses Google search via the Google App; the same list appears, but with "Tick" icons on the right. )

Thankyou JB.
