The below steps cover how to open the "Clear browsing data" dialog in Edge to delete its history, cookies, cached files and other data.

"Clear browsing data" is also accessible from the "Settings and more" ellipsis (...) in the top right corner of Edge. Choose "Privacy, search, and services" then click on Choose what to clear in the "Clear browsing data" section against "Clear browsing data now".

The "Privacy, search, and services" "Clear browsing data" section also contains the "Choose what to clear every time you close the browser" options. This allows you to select the information types Edge stores.
