Please let us know the browser you are using so we can properly assist you.

Although on all browsers if you can find the history option you can usually delete via that.

I want to take off the recently visited sites on my google home page

Which browser ?
If you are planning on selling a computer or giving one away, you may want to consider removing all of your personal records from the computer before you share it with someone else so you can protect your privacy.

Even doing something as simple as clearing the history from your web browser can ensure that others who see the computer will not have access to the sites you visited, along with any usernames or passwords.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

If you use Internet Explorer, click the "Tools" menu.

Select "Internet Options" from the drop-down list and choose "Delete."
Click all the boxes in the window that appears and click "Delete" again.

For Firefox, press "Ctrl" + "Shift" + "Delete" to open the "Clear Recent History" window. Select "Everything" from the drop-down menu and select "OK."

For Opera, click the "File" menu. Click "Preferences" and choose "History."

Select "Empty Now." Safari

Double-click the "Safari" icon on your computer to open Safari.

I need to deleat my face book from my mobile not my computer

Open Internet Explorer.

Click "Tools," then select "Internet Options."

Click the "Delete" button under "Browsing History."

This deletes Facebook from your browsing history, so no one can view your history and tell that you've been on the site.

Open the "Security" tab, then click the "Restricted sites" icon.

Click the "Sites" button, then enter "" into the box and click the "Add" button.

This adds Facebook to the list of blacklisted sites in Internet Explorer, which means you'll no longer be able to visit the site.

Click the "Close" button, then click "OK" to save your settings.

You've successfully removed Facebook from your computer.

Google Chrome

Open Google Chrome.

Click the wrench icon near the top-right corner of the screen, then click "Options."

Open the "Under the Hood" tab, then click the "Clear browsing data..." button to erase evidence of the Facebook website on your PC.

Click the "Content settings..." button, then click the "Manage exceptions..." button.

Enter "" into the "Pattern" box, then click the drop-down "Behavior" box and select "Block." Click the "x" at the top of the Chrome tab to close the "Options" tab.

Mozilla Firefox

Open Mozilla Firefox.

Click "Tools," then click "Clear your recent history."

Open the drop-down box, select "Everything" and click "Clear Now."

This removes any history you have of browsing the Facebook site on your PC while using Firefox.

Unfortunately, Firefox does not have the built-in capability to block websites from being displayed or data from being transmitted to and from those websites.

There are third-party add-ons (click "Add-ons" under "Options") that will block websites, or you can do it through the HOSTS file in Windows.

Hope this helps.
