Web Address drop down menu in IE?

  AdventCalendar 10:52 13 Mar 03

This is with regards to the drop down menu across the top that stores your last 20-30 web sites.

Every so often this seems to be deleted and goes blank?

any ideas??? Its driving me mad :-(

Sounds like your "Delete History" is kicking into action every so often, AdventCalendar. How long are you keeping pages in History? In IE, Tools > Internet Options > General tab > History section > "Days to keep pages in History", and does the number of days correspond to the time they take to disappear from the dropdown menu?

30 days....seems about right yeah, once a month. what do you have yours at???

does that mean each month you have to re-put your web addresses back in??

If you need to check on a previous URL you should look in History - this keeps a record of where you have been.

You can adjust the time this is retained as suggested by MAJ.

If you visit a lot of websites then you may wish to keep the History details for as many days as you require.

Once you have visited a website, AutoComplete should fill in the full address as soon as you have typed the first few letters.
