    In Internet Explorer go under Tools, the Internet Options, then under the General Tab click the Clear History button. That should do the trick (it will also clear your history of sites visted). Hope it is what you are looking for!

    DaveDozen,

    Clearing history unfortunatlely does not clear your AutoComplete. Look at this thread.

    CLEARING AUTO-COMPLETE LIST

    There are a lot of suggestions here and several should do the job. I have the same interest - I've just been too busy to follow through on the suggestions. (sorry guys! I'll get to it. I promise!)

    Heck .... why don't you figure out what works easiest and let me know and save me some time ! :D

    To delete Autocomplete entries from the Address bar list

    The AutoComplete feature saves previous entries you've made for Web addresses, forms, and passwords. To delete entries from the Address bar, you must clear your History folder. You cannot clear individual entries from the list of saved entries.

    On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options.
    Click the General tab.
    Under History, click Clear History.


    It works, you must close the browser, then open a new one ;)

    That'll do it, I've been testing, the only thing left on the drop down will be auto fills from your favorites :D :D

    Test my theory. It clears everything except for what you have in your favorites folders.......

    More beer is always a good suggestion :D
