Auto Complete

AutoComplete is a feature added to Internet Explorer with version 5. As soon as you start typing into an online form, Internet Explorer will present you with previous entries that match what you have typed so far. It can be a great timesaver, but also a great annoyance. If you are on a shared or public computer, and would rather not have Internet Explorer remember your entries, you can configure AutoComplete (or turn it off completely) at Tools/Internet Options/Content/AutoComplete.
