Thread: Address Bar or navigation bar

    Default Address Bar or navigation bar

    Does anyone have any idea how to delete the old addresses that stay in the IE address bar drop down. I dont want to go in and delete the browsing history cause then I will lose all of the addresses. For example my Uncle was up for a few weeks and typed in his email provider and I will never use that so I would like to take it of the address drop down. Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Just my thought but maybe you will have to approach Rick about it when he comes back from his moose hunt.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    I understand...gotta get the rid of the porn addresses

    There's no easy way to do this unless you hack into the registry and delete them from there. Editing the registry is not for the computer illiterate, so if you're feeling daring, check out this Microsoft help file

    1.Quit Internet Explorer.2.Delete all of the values except for the (Default) value from the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs
    NOTE: Values in this registry key are listed as Url1, Url2, Url3, and so on. If you delete only some values and the remaining values are not in consecutive numerical order, only some of the remaining entries are listed in the Address box. To prevent this behavior from occurring, rename the remaining values so that they are in consecutive numerical order.

    Have fun!

    Hello???? This isn't difficult at all! In IE, click on tools/internet options/general.

    Third box down is "History". Click on "clear history" and they're hisory.

    But, he says he does not want to delete ALL the history--just selected ones--that is more of a problem.

    I have asked my very compter literate son this question, and his answer is to clean everything out. There's no practical way to selectively sort them.

    you would think that there would be an easier way than going through the regedit but I can't find one. I wonder why you just can't right click and delete?
