When the Convenient Becomes Inconvenient

At first, having all the titles you’re currently watching on HBO Max show up on the main menu can seem like a quick way to resume your streaming marathons. But as the shows pile up, it can become harder to find the one you’re looking for.

And this gets even worse when you accidentally select a show you didn’t even want to watch, as you’re now stuck having to see it every day as an option.

All the more reason to be careful with your choices, huh?

The good news is that getting rid of this intolerable list and your watch history is very easy and almost instant. Let me show you how to clear your main menu, and enjoy an uncluttered interface once again!

Deleting Your Continue Watching List

Nobody likes a crowded interface. Streaming platforms are designed to be intuitive and appealing to the user’s eyes, so having a million shows appearing on the main menu and cluttering things up is a nightmare.

Here’s how to get rid of your Continue Watching list:

  1. Launch HBO Max on your PC (you can do this on any other streaming device, but this is the simplest way to go)
Hbo Menu With Red Arrow Pointing Continue Watching
Hbo Menu Continue Watching With Red Arrow Pointing To Edit Tool
Clear All Option in Continue Watching Hbo Max Menu

That’s it. I told you it was a walk in the park!


One of the most important features of a streaming platform is its ease of use.

No matter how great the content it offers is, if you can’t seamlessly navigate between titles, clear your “Continue Watching” list, or Rewind and Fast Forward, the experience will be disappointing, and you’ll likely cancel your subscription within a month.

Luckily, as I hope you’ve learned in this piece, getting rid of your “Continue Watching” list is not only extremely simple but also nearly immediate. Whether you only want to delete some titles or get rid of the entire catalog, the process should be faster than brewing coffee.
