How to remove all recent console command

to using commands that were previously submitted by bringing focus to the console and pressing up/down key on it. I want to remove all of the recent command. I've tried this command :


but it's still not working properly. I even clean the whole cookies and cache in the browser. but these commands still there on the console. does anyone know how?



If you want to clear the list of last typed commands, follow these steps:

(Step 1 and 2 are important, don't skip them!)

  1. Undock the console (click on the icon in the bottom-left corner, undock icon).
    (if you don't see the undock icon, but , then hold the mouse pressed for a few seconds to get the desired icon)
  2. Press Ctrl + Shift + J to open the console for this console. (On OSX use Cmd + Option + i)
  3. Go to the Resources tab, "Local Storage", chrome-devtools://devtools.
  4. Right-click on the item with key "consoleHistory", and choose "Delete". chrome-devtools://devtools -> consoleHistory -> Delete

  5. Done! You may close the new console, and then dock the previous one if wanted. The console history will be gone when you reload the console.

If you just want to clear the console log (not the commands), just press Ctrl + L.

You could also use Incognito mode if you don't want to keep the list of commands you're going to type.


You can now just right click on the console area and select "Clear console history".

I found a quick way to do this with cool keyboard shortcut:

Inside chrome console

  1. Press Ctrl + Shift + P
  2. You will see this awesome command palette opened: chrome devtools command palette
  3. type clear and you will find it :) chrome devtools: clear console history

That's it!


Simply enter clear() in the chrome console to remove all previous text there.


I ended up here looking for how to do the same thing in Firefox.

In case anyone else does the same, there is a clearHistory command in the Firefox console which will do just that.


It can also be fixed by going to the developer tool settings and resetting to defaults.. (this will not reset 'Chrome', only developer tools options)

  • Open Chrome devtools
  • Go to settings (or press Windows ->F1 / OS X -> FN + F1)
  • Reset to the defaults

This way you will lose your developer settings, but for me the only thing that mattered was turning cache off again..


Press f5 key. When you refresh the current webpage where you've been working on, the command history will be removed.

  1. Open Chrome Developer Tools Settings.

    Chrome Developer Tools Settings

  2. At the bottom of the Settings page, there is an option button. Press Restore defaults and reload. the problem will be fixed, and all previously stored Google Chrome console commands will be removed.

    Restore defaults and reload


If you don't want to have this console history (like myself), simply disable it from the devtool's configuration options (see on the image) below ...
