What is autocomplete?


When I am typing in the address window it keeps copying what I type can this be stopped.

I don't want it to remember where I went to.As soon as you type one letter it would bring up

everything that you type beginning within that letter.Its very annoying can you help?

Seems to me like you want to disable autocomplete.

From your Internet Explorer Browser:

1 Click Tools from your menu bar

2 Click Internet Options

3 Click the Content tab

4 Click the AutoComplete button

From there uncheck the things you want to disable

To answer your question:

You need to uncheck "Web Addresses"

When finished be sure to click OK, then Click OK again so your changes could take effect Close all the browsers that are open And open up a new one to test your changes.

I hope this was helpful :o)
