For example, I use Google to find the proper spelling of words. Although I hate seeing those mistyped entries everytime I do a search.
There are two ways to delete items from the Autocomplete feature. One, delete all the entries in Autocomplete (sometimes this is good to do anyway for privacy reasons). Two, delete a single entry from a particular field. For example, go to favorite web site that has a field on it (i.e.: Google) then type any letter. If IE's autocomplete feature is enabled, you will see all the words/phrases that you have searched for that start with that letter.
To delete an item it the Autocomplete list:
- Goto the web site, that has the field that contains the entry you want to delete
- Use the up or down arrow keys to select the entry, then press the Delete key (Note: I don't mean the Backspace key).
