Please Note : There is no way to delete or hide any unwanted commands. Selecting ā€œXā€ will wipe out entire commands on this session. However it will keep indexing all future commands upto 500.

The logs will be lost once you completely log out from the Main EAC session. However you can get the commands from Crimson logs for your future reference as shown below.
