    My old WIN98 PC auto-fills the fields on certain web sites when I enter the first character of the string (except for passwords). I can't remember whether or how I made it do that. I would like to set up my new WIN XP PC to do it but so far can't determine how. I think it's asking whether I want it to save passwords but I don't. Searches for auto-fill and autofill in the MS knowledge bases produce no results.

    Go to "Control Panel"> Internet Options>Content> Auto Complete
    and check what you want it to do. Have a good day.

    Thanks so much, Dr. Dave! It was simple once I knew where to look. I have a Gateway PC and can't get to Windows Help (assuming there still is such) because all requests point to the Gateway Help & Support screen. Surely MS has this in their Help if I could just get to it. But that may be assuming too much because I couldn't find it in their knowledge base.
    Thanks again. You guys are the greatest!
