    Just curious but why doesn’t Ctrl+Shft+Del work? If I click on the three dots there is a clear browsing right there to click on and that is what I happen to use but I AM curious as to why the Ctrl+shft+del has not worked for quite sometime now.

      It does work. But it only works when Chrome is open and in focus.
