There needs to be an option to delete/clear search history!
There is no way to delete/clear search history in Outlook.com!!!!!! This is crazy! This is a basic necessity!
Thank you for all of the great feedback, and for using outlook.com! I just wanted to let you know that everyone should be able to clear their search history now.
To do this follow these steps
1) Click the Gear/Cog in the top right hand corner
2) Click Full Settings at the bottom of the Quick Setting Pane
3) Select General in the left
4) Select Export
From here you can delete your search history, export it if you want a copy, or request an export of your mailbox.
Hope this helps!

(1) How to delete the items in the search box?
(2) Category is very important. Please do not delete this in the new outlook.

Definitely, this is the basic necessity. How can someone rollout a service without history clear function now days?
Exactly! Do I have to see my recent search always? There is no explanation. We sometimes use outlook when with colleagues / family and no need to see my searching for them. This feature should be added.

Find the X to delete a SEARCH term more intuitive than the BACK arrow. BACK to what?!
Give option to clear the previous search items.No necessity to accumulate and show the previous search on, when we click on search box.
