:thumbsup: In error, I accidentally placed a hyperlink (HTML Code) from a Website, into my Website's Address Bar.

Can someone please give me advice/detailed instructions how to remove it.

I am new to HTML.

Thanks to all for your valued help.

Browsers have an address bar, What kind of website has a address bar?

Does it look similar to this?

<a href="http://www.fedex.com/us/" target="_self">FedEx</a>

<a href=" "</a> is HTML code for a hyperlink.

To get rid of it:

Internet Explorer:

1) Click the drop down arrow in the address bar. (it is on the right side)
2) Place your cursor over the entry to highlight it.
3) After highlighting look to the far right of the entry. Click the X.


1) Click History.
2) Choose Show All History.
3) Open up the folder for the day it was entered into the address bar.
4) Find the entry, right click on it.
5) Choose Delete.

If you use a different browser you can either root around and try to find out how to delete it or post which browser you use.
