Hi everyone,

I don't know the techinical term for this, but I'm referring to in the blank part you enter the web address on IE...lets say you want to goto yahoo.com, so you type "ya" only, and it fills in the rest "yahoo.com" to click. Well, I need to know if there's a way to disable that. The reason is, I'm using the internet to research diamonds for an engagement ring for my girlfriend. We live together, and she uses the same computer as I do. I'm afraid one of those sites will come up in the browser accidentally and tip her off I'm looking. Can anyone help me out with this?? Thanks!
Jason

Hiya

Go to Tools | internet Options. Content tab. Autocomplete. Clear Forms. You may also want to uncheck Web addresses User Names if you want.

Also, to clear the history, go to the General tab and clear History.
