Internet Explorer Question
How to turn off automatic searching...

 2:06 pm on Jun 21, 2004 (gmt 0)

When I'm in IE and doing a search on the Yahoo! engine...

If I type say 'apple', a list of past 'a' searches will drop down in a text box. How can I turn that off completely?

Go to TOOLS ¦ Internet Options
Change to the Content tab
Under Personal Information, there are buttons to manage Auto Complete and "My Profile"... The Auto Complete section contains controls for managing forms and password remembering.

By Unchecking forms, you can turn the feature off. Alternatively, there is a button for "clear forms" and "clear passwords" where you can empty out either without turning off the feature, just "clean house" a bit.

Hopt That Helps
