Auto suggest in user field

I have created my own column to indicated the genre of a book. I manually enter the names such as "mystery" or "suspense" or "Alt History." All are one or two word entries.

From time to time I mis-type an entry. Thus the program will suggest:
Mysgtery
Mysery
Mystery
and such like that.

Is there any way to purge the erroneous suggested entries, or even all entries?

Sincere thanks

Remove them from the Tag editor. (actually REMOVES from ALL places used)
Rename them IN the Tag Editor, to the correct name, that will in essence, merge the uses

Removing offending tags

I'm sorry to be so dumb. When you say "tag editor" where do you mean? In the "Tags" field I can right click on a book. I then select "Edit Metadata." Then I select "Edit in Bulk". I use the drop down menu on the right of "remove tag" and select an offending tag I want to delete. I hit return and.... it has no effect. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your patience.

In any book that has a Genre, right click the value (e.g. Mystery) in the Book Details panel (where the cover is shown) and select Manage Mystery, and you'll get something like this:

Don't delete "Mysgtery", press F2 and correct it, then it will trickle down into all the books that have the misspelling.

Do what BR said
You can also get to Manage in the Tag Browser (on the Left)
FWIW There is a 'Manage" for each category listed there, so you can fix Publisher ...
Fixing the spelling Merges with similar
Avoid Deleting IF spelling is your goal

Once you start a change, the context menu (right click) allows CaSe correction

Another thing to try:

Get the Find Duplicates plugin, put it on your toolbar, and look for this option:

Click on the dropdown arrow beside the Find Duplicates icon. You should see Find Metadata Variations in that menu.
