How to stop Internet Explorer suggesting sites as you type

The more you use Internet Explorer, the more it can learn about you. Much of this learning can prove to be useful as the browser will be able to help you save time by speeding up things you do often. One such feature is the autocomplete option which will suggest sites as you start to type in the address bar.

It may well be the case that you would prefer Internet Explorer did no try to guess what site you are going to visit — this is particularly true if you happen to share your computer with someone else, but it could just be something that you disagree with.

Launch Internet Explorer, click the gear icon to the upper right of the screen and select Internet options from the menu. Move to the Content tab and click the Settings button in the AutoComplete section.


In the list of options that appears, untick the box labelled Suggesting URLs beneath the Use AutoComplete for heading. Click OK.


That’s all there is to it. You can then close down the Internet Options dialog and get back to using Internet Explorer.
