how do I clear google chrome console suggessions
I actually ran into this issue (needing to clear
consoleHistory) when I maxed out its capacity. In this case clicking on
chrome-devtools://de... in inspector would crash the window and trying to delete via
localStorage.removeItem() would timeout or be otherwise unsuccessful.
At the end of it -- my fix was deleting the localStorage data files themselves. On a mac, the instructions are:
cd ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Local Storage rm chrome-devtools_devtools_0.localstorage rm chrome-devtools_devtools_0.localstorage-journal
A quick google search suggests on Windows it's
%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage, but you may need to double check.

Then, knowing that DevTools are in fact a webapp, I've opened another DevTools window (B) inside already opened one (A) using keyboard shortcut. Next, I've navigated to the "Resoures" tab, and in the "Local storage" section found a
After removing it (right-click and "Delete") and closing both DevTools windows (A and B) I found my console history empty.
