After you search for something once in your Gmail search bar it seems to always come up as a suggestion. This can be both annoying and detrimental.

For example, if you are looking for a new job and searched your email once for “job application status,” you probably wouldn’t want that coming up as a suggestion the next time you start typing “John” in your search bar in front of your boss.

Worry no more. Removing these items from your Gmail search history is easy and will prevent them from coming up as drop-down suggestions in the future. Keep in mind, this will only work for things you have searched for, you can not remove the system generated search terms.
