How to Remove Unwanted Autocomplete Suggestion from Chrome

The Google Chrome is doing amazing job in suggesting autocomplete right after you start typing something in the URL address.

However, do you find it annoying when you see some history sites keep appearing when you are no longer using them? Today I am going to share the trick on how to delete this. I know this trick quite some time ago, but after reading a Lifehacker post on this, it reminded me again this problem still exist and people out there may just need the solution.

Let me quote what was written in the original post which I find amusing and realistic to most of us (original post here).
"Stop me if you've heard this one: Once upon a time, you visited a web site that you're not exactly proud of. Let's say the content of said web site rhymes with "corn". And oops! You forgot to go incongnito beforehand. You've frantically deleted the site from your history once you realized your mistake, but from this point forward, every time you type in "po", Chrome helpfully autocompletes the entire URL. THANKS CHROME!"
Solution? Shift+Del

#1. You are searching for something by typing the words in the URL bar, then realize a suggestion that you do not want to see anymore. For example, I am going to my usual website - to see the schedule of the Chelsea vs Liverpool game tonight. But, I notice a suggestion to, which is a streaming site I used long ago to watch football games which I do not use nowadays. (What do I use? Here)
Shift + Del

#2. Use you arrow button to scroll down until the website is highlighted. Then Press Shift+Del. Done!

 Shift + Del

Note: Do not forget to use Incognito next time :) - Ctrl + Shift + N
