Can I clear this colors used history
I get confused when I have these displayed if I use similar colors and I want to clear what I have previously used, so that I start fresh:

Can I reset these colors or clear them?

I do this from time to time.

Go into your User ./gimp-2.8 folder and find the file colorrc
delete this file.
when Gimp starts up it will make a new default colorrc file

So in Users\(User)\.gimp-2.8 yes I deleted it, had to delete it several times cause at first I still saw the same color history and the file restored itself but eventually the history got cleared, thanks!

Also consider using the FG/BG dialogue box.

It only keeps the current color & has all the functions (it appears...)
of the color picker in milddle of the toolbox. Except the main ones are single letter icons on the right side of the window.

"Windows > Dockable Dialogues > Colors..."

A video of what it looks like *MUTE SPEAKERS THAN TURN THE youtube VOLUME LOW, I think its kinda loud.
