AutoComplete setting button
  • The Web addresses specify if you want IE to list your recent entered internet addresses when you type it in the address bar. Do not check the box if you don’t want IE to list it.
  • The Forms specify if you want IE to list all the entries you used like your names and address information in web forms. Do not check the box to disable this.
  • The User names and passwords on forms makes IE fill the username and password information when you visit different web pages.

Under AutoComplete history, click the Clear forms and Clear password button to delete the information that IE stored.

Under this is an option to clear history, click the OK button.

Under the General tab, click Clear History button to delete the entire history. You cannot delete entries one by one from the history list.

Good Day Johnny,

You have asked about disabling the AutoComplete in your web browser internet explorer. It’s quite simple and I will show you some screen shots which will lead you to the proper procedure. The screen shots are attached to the answer.

  1. Go to your internet explorer & then go to “Tools”.
  2. A small window will open; now go to “Internet Options”.
  3. Again a window will open; go to “Content” and select “AutoComplete” and click on settings.
  4. Uncheck all the options and click ok.
  5. Finally click OK once more and clear the history of your browser and restart it.

Here you are! The AutoComplete would not be there any more.

Thank you.
