Remove entry from table name filter

Hi all,

Just to clarify I'm talking about the filter in the toolbar on top, above the database/table tree. I have ended up with some table names there that are long gone and I would like to delete them from the list. But I can't see a way to do it.

If I export the settings file, I find this in an entry called "TableFilter"

TIA :)

HeidiSQL keeps a maximum of 20 items in that table filter history. If you want to remove them, you will have to do that per regedit.exe:

  • delete value TableFilter (respectively DatabaseFilter)

Thank you so much! It would be nice (for future reference :) to had perhaps a right click option to delete the entry. I use this quite a bit and it would be nice to be able to easily remove individual entries :)

Thanks for a fantastic product!!!
