    How to delete drop down menu?

    Sorry for the newbie question; but when I type in a word in a search tab, it remembers what I typed so the next time I use a search window a box drops down to allow me to click on what I had previously typed. How do I clear that?

    thanks

    Hello Ralph, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    Turning off AutoComplete in Internet Explorer Internet Options should stop that for you. If you just wanted to clear it, then click on the delete history button instead.

    Hope this helps,
