    Ok, this seems pretty simple but I cant find where to do it. I know how to clear recently opened documents and programs but when using the Search For File or Folders feature I dont know how to clear the autocomplete in the ALL OR PART OF THE FILE NAME: box. This is on an XP Pro machine. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Augie, worked great. You'd think there'd be something as simple as the clear recent docs button. But this works just fine. Thanks again.
