Installation, update, upgrade and uninstallation are the routine tasks of computing.

Whatever destinations or pages you visit have a unique address, which are stored by your system or specifically the browser.

There's no need to store more than a week's cookies or webpages’ path information, as they eat up the precious system memory.
Hence, learn to reduce the size of your webpage history. Depending upon the browser type or version the steps would differ, but you should read the support manual for better information. Next, don't save encrypted webpages as they store more information to prevent others from reading that content. It will be good if you change browser settings to not save encrypted webpages.
