How to remove a search term/url from Edge

The other day I wanted to lookup the price of a PlayStation in France. I entered into Edge and found the details – all was good. However, now whenever I start to type ‘am..’ into Edge it keeps trying to ‘help’ me auto-filling in again. Grrr. The way I managed to stop Edge doing this is to hack the values out of the Registry. As with any Registry changes you must be careful and do this at your own risk;

    Close Edge
    Open Registry Editor: Windows->Run. Regedit
    Select the first node
    Type in the core part of the url you want to remove, e.g.
    Look at the path (in the status bar at the bottom). Delete each instance your find that has any path related to Edge
    Repeat by pressing F3 once after each delete
