Drop Down Menu

By wayneinreno ·
Is it possible to remove the option to have the drop down menu automatically come down when some one types in the first letter in the address bar?? If an employee types "a" then all the addresses I used with an "a" become public knowledge in my office. How can I stop this from occuring.Is it even possible?? I am running win98 second edition.

Hi,
Open the tools menu on Internet Explorer. Click on Internet Options. Click the Content Tab. Click the Auto Complete button. In the "Use AutoComplete for" section remove the check mark from "Web Addresses". Next click on the Advance Tab. Scroll down to "Use inline AutoComplete for Web addresses" remove the check mark. Click on the General tab. Click the "Clear History button". You can also put a zero in the days to keep in history box. After you do this the drop down menu will no longer appear when you type in the address bar. Recently typed addresses will still apear in the drop down menu when the down arrow is clicked. To clear these addresses click on the "Clear History" button on the Internet Options dialoge box on the General Tabas previously explained. You will need to click on the "Clear History" button each time you finish using the computer.
Take Care, Shana

Hi,
If you are using Netscape 4.73 or higher,

Click on Edit > Preferences.
Click on Navigation.
Under 'Navigator starts with', make sure blank page or home page is checked.
Under 'History' click the clear history button, and set the number of days to store in history to '0'.
Under 'Location bar history', click 'clear location bar'

Just perform this after each session online and you are safe.

If using IE 5 then go with the first answer you got.

I personlally find it a lot easier to cover your tracks with Netscape than with Explorer though. I you don't have Netscape, I suggest you get it and use it for your personal surfing.
