How to Delete/Clear Downloads History on Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5 is equipped with two pre-loaded Browser apps, Chrome program and Internet program. Should you use one or both of these apps to download something then all download histories will be listed at exactly the exact same area within My Files app. You can watch the download background to rapidly open up a downloaded document. If necessary, you can also delete some or all download histories, for instance when you need to clean up the download history or when you need nobody knows what you have downloaded previously.
