Where are you using Google Search, from a widget or (sounds like) in the app drawer?

Something like this & is it on the desktop? 

If it is, it shouldn't be searching for installed apps. 

It should open up what you see in the 2nd screen shot.

If what you are seeing is a list as shown by @RedDogRabbit you can scroll down the list and find an item called manage history where you can set the time until history is deleted or delete whatever you want with the different choicesScreenshot_20220105-065836_Samsung Internet.jpg

Or they can also click on the "Delete" button lower right side & Select a period of time to delete, or delete all time. 

But Google's got a good memory, & searching for previously searched topics may still appear as you start to type in the Search Field. It's also possible that it's your keyboard's memory that is anticipating / autocompleting words as they type. I know that SwiftKey can do that. 

In either case, it's not designed to annoy anyone, but to "help".

Hi, Could you confirm if it's with all the apps?
