Clearing *.CHM cache without Internet Explorer

The CHM file format has been used for many years for help files. It basically is an archive of many *.html and picture files and works similar to the offline version of a web page. Opening a CHM file on Windows will use some Internet Explorer shared DLLs in order to display its contents.

Microsoft has finally removed Internet Explorer from the most recent Windows 10 version. CHM files can still be displayed, but the "Internet Options" control panel application does no longer exist.

Does anybody know how to clear the "recent files", "visited links", "search history", "address autocomplete", ... for CHM files without the "Internet Options" control panel application?

I've already searched registry, C:\ProgramData\ and C:\Users\ for some of the entries in ANSI, UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoding but didn't get a single hit.

(Obviously: I don't want to install Internet Explorer again, I'm happy that it and most of its bugs are gone for good)
