Frequently Asked Computer Questions

"How do I get rid of the previous searches... when I type something into Google all my old searches reappear."

Many a people have lent their computer to another person only to have the history of previous searches scroll down, which of course, be very embarrassing.

Many new computer users assume that this is Google's doing, but actually it is the "Auto Complete" feature of Microsoft Internet Explorer.

If you are tired of having your computer "remember" everything that you've been doing - then your IE is set to Auto Complete forms. This is the "factory" default setting for Internet Explorer - but don't worry, it is easy to turn off.

Follow the following steps to turn off the Auto Complete setting:

  Tools >>
  Internet Options >>
  Content >>
  Autocomplete >>

Now uncheck "forms" and also click on "clear forms".

That's all there is to it.
