How to turn off recently searched drop down window when searching in google etc...
I am wondering if anyone knows how to turn off the drop window that drop downs when:
If you search on yahoo mark, bark, mets, baseball, bat
And you go again to search for best as your typing and type in "B" a drop down window/box will drop down and shope bark, baseball and bast since you recently searched those...
i speak from experience, many years ago when autocomplete was first released, i would go out searching yahoo for free porn, with descriptive terms that would make larry flint blush. Then, an hour before the parents were scheduled to be home, i was freaking out trying to figure out how to clear that information. At the time there was no option to clear that data, so the only thing i could do was to format the system and reinstall windows.
Of course, later i learned to use less popular search engines that i knew my parents would never visit, then before they would get home, i would just modify the history to not include records of me going to those websites .
No its not because of sites I visit, its just I dont like the auto complete unless its for passwords and usernames.
Its weird, this is my computer no one else uses it. I am the admin and only account on this computer and Im using Windows XP Home Edition. I cant access the IE options thru the browser, it says "this option had been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact the system adminstrator."
-- but I am the adminstrator....
I can access the options by right clicking the IE icon on the desktop tho, anyone have this problem b4?
