How do I clear gnome calculator history? Like in terminal, we can press Ctrl L to clear, but what about calculator? I also don't see a clear button?

  • Did you try entering "reset"? – Hunter.S.Thompson Jul 31 '17 at 17:50
  • @Hunter.S.Thompson - no, it won't work. Del used to reset the calc (confirmed by older man pages) but it doesn't work anymore. I think it was around 3.12 that they fubar-ed the whole gtk keyboard shortcuts module... whether this is related to that or it's a bug in calc, I don't know... – don_crissti Jul 31 '17 at 18:06
  • Nah none of them work Dx – K Split X Jul 31 '17 at 19:21

Ctrl+Esc clears the calculator history (tested on Ubuntu 19.10 and Fedora 28).

This is documented in the shortcuts screen available from the menu:
