The AutoComplete feature saves previous entries you've made for Web addresses, forms, and passwords. Then, when you type information in one of these fields, AutoComplete suggests possible matches. These matches can include folder and program names you type into the Address bar, and search queries, stock quotes, or information for just about any other field you fill in on a Web page.
In the Address bar, a field on a Web page, or a box for a user name or password, start typing the information.
If you've typed a similar entry before, AutoComplete lists possible matches as you type.
If a suggestion in the list matches what you want to enter in that field, click the suggestion.
If no suggestion matches what you are typing, continue typing.
The information used for suggested matches is stored on your computer and is encrypted to protect your privacy.
Web sites cannot gain access to this information. They can receive only what you explicitly enter in forms.
When typing information in Web forms, and typing passwords, you can remove an item from the list of suggestions by clicking the item and then pressing the DELETE key. To learn how to delete entries from the Address bar list, click Related Topics below.
