How to save typing in IE5

By mtisdel ·
This may be obvious, but I have not been able to find it....
Which setting makes it so that when I begin typing in a URL, and IE5 finds a match, that I can hit enter and it selects the top match and goes there. Netscape did this automatically.
For example: if I want to go to www.cisco.com and I type "www.ci" and cisco was the only site beginning with "www.ci" in the history file, then I could hit enter without further intervention and be taken to the Cisco site.

How to save typing in IE5

IE 4.0 did this just like netscape but for IE 5.0 Microsoft had to "improve" this by making it open a drop down menu where you have to arrow down to select the one you want from the list. If this is turned off you can turn it on by going to Tools, Internet Options, Content, Autocomplete, and check Web Address. I personally don't care for it and wish it was the same as IE 4.0 was.

Good Luck

If you reset your browser's option to default, it will work because this is the default functionality of IE5.
