Internet Explorer Hint: Auto Complete Drop-Down

Description: You’re on one web page and you want to go to another page…a page you visit all the time.
Suggestion: You can always start typing the address. Or, you can use the drop-down menu to select the address.

Click the drop-down arrow in the toolbar beside the address and a list appears. Use your cursor to point to an entry in the list and click it. The new web page appears.


  1. In IE 9 and above, the autocomplete list has been diminished to show only 5 recent entries. TO restore the autocomplete to show more than 5 URLs, you can go to internet options and uhckeck favorites and history from autocomplete options.

  2. Thanks for the helpful hint and the link to the instructions.
