    You know how you type in searches and ie automatically saves your entry so that you don't have to type same thing next time? Well, my drop down is very long. Is there a way to clear out everything and start over? Thanks.

    To clear the drop-down list on fill-in boxes on various web pages (like search engines), in Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>Content tab>Auto-Complete button. Click on the "Clear Forms" button.

    If you want it to stop keeping those lists entirely, uncheck the appropriate boxes under "Use Autocomplete for."

    If you want to delete only some of the entries on individual web page forms, double click on the form field (where you type stuff in) and use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to select them and then the Delete key on the keyboard to delete them individually.
