How To Delete Movies From “Continue Watching” On Netflix

Netflix gives us a wide range of movies to choose from and we are thankful. We would even be more grateful if we can directly remove movies from our “continue watching” list. It’s quite frustrating to keep seeing movies we’ve concluded with or worse still, those we don’t want others to see on our list. It is especially unsettling for those with OCD.

Well, it’s possible to remove movies from your continue watching list. How?
