It will hide the entire search history stored in the browser. The search terms or keywords will be removed, but they may get synced within your Microsoft account.

If you do not want Edge to store search keywords or terms, consider using the InPrivate browsing mode. It will not store any search history, including the browser cookies and site visit history. All the records are deleted on exiting the private mode.
