A. A. Internet Explorer has the neat ability to auto complete a URL as you type it. This can however be annoying and you may want to turn this off. It can be accomplished by performing the following:
- Start Internet Explorer
- From the Tools menu select 'Internet Options'
- Select the Content tab
- Click 'AutoComplete' under the 'Personal Information' section
- Unselect 'Web addresses' and click OK
- Click OK to the main dialog
You can also accomplish this by setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete\AutoSuggest to "no" (don't type the quotes) in the registry.
