Can I erase things I recently looked at on Amazon.com so they don’t show up on the home page when I return?
You can remove certain products from your Amazon shopping trail, or turn off your browsing history on the site altogether. To remove specific items from the Recently Viewed section when you are logged into your Amazon page, click the “View or edit your browsing history” link under a row of products. On the resulting “Your Browsing History” page, find the product you want to remove and click the “Delete this item” link.
In the “Manage Your Browsing History” box on the left side of the page, you also have options to delete all the items on list at once or turn off your browsing history completely. You can also get to your browsing history settings by clicking the Your Account button at the top of the Amazon page and scrolling down to the Personalization section.
