how to delete specific suggestions in form select elements?

When entering data in a form, example a login form, chrome remembers what has oreviously been filled in and shows that as suggestions. How can I delete some of those suggestions?

Example. On a login form I entered a wrong username, that username stays in the suggestions for ever, unless I clear all form data, but that is not what I want. Just that username. In fire fox you can click the arrows to go to the suggestion and press ctrl+shift+del to get rid of specific suggestions.

There is no way to clear the specific suggestions but you can clear all browsing data by visiting chrome://settings/clearBrowserData.

If you want to delete specific username and password, click: chrome://settings/passwords

There is an easy way to turn it off.

1.Go to tools
2.Select Options (Preferences for Mac Users)
3.In the Under the Hood tabs, the first section you see is privacy settings. To turn the search suggestions off, uncheck the “Use a suggestion service” option.

Now none of the information you type is being sent back to your search provider until you press Enter. Other browsers separate the search box from the URL box, but the feature being combined doesn’t change the privacy of the browser unless this particular feature is turned off.
