This is the Autocomplete option, suggesting previous search terms for convince sake. However, it can also be annoying and a privacy issue.
If you are using Google.com with Internet Explorer, go Tools->Internet Options->Content, and click AutoComplete. On the next window you can click Clear Forms to erase previously-stored data, then uncheck all boxes to disable it. Note that this affects all sites, not just Google.
If this is Firefox, go Tools->Options->Privacy->Saved Forms, then uncheck the box and click the Clear button. Note that this affects all sites, not just Google.
If this is the Google toolbar, click on the Google logo and then select the appropriate option from the drop-down menu.
Hope this helps,
Is it something I have done accidently? I run XP and Google is my only search engine. I do not use the Google desktop just saved as a favorite. All of a sudden the other night it began logging every entry I made into the search box. I can't think of the correct term for this but you know what I mean if I search once for "Paris" and my next search is for "pants" it tries to offer Paris in the drop down.
How do I turn this off?
Thanks for any help.
