When i'm searching for a file or folder, when i type in what i'm looking for it gives me a list of all the previous searches i have done starting with that letter e.g. when i'm looking for say games, when i start to type in the letter g i get a list of everything else that i have looked for starting with g. I understand that some people find this helpful and time saving but i want to know how i can disable this function or alternatively delete some of the options. Thanks in advance

Do you mean in windows itself or in your Internet browser? also which version of windows. j.

Not sure about Windows.

Highlight the entry and hit delete. eg, in the google search.

well I can find loads of info. on how to enable/disable "Auto. complete" in IE, or other browsers, but nothing for windows itself. Sorry but maybe someone will be able to help. j.

Did you type g then highlight (BUT NOT CLICK) then entry you want to remove and then hit delete?

Doesn't work if you click on the entry first.

Try Window Washer, you can set it to remove find/search history and it can be downloaded from the PCA site.

Open Internet Explorer, go: tools, internet options, content tab, auto complete.

For more info try google.
