How to disable / enable internet explorer autocomplete?

By default, Internet Explorer stores your previous entries in the web address bar, or in web forms where you enter personal information, password or user names to log on. If you share your computer with other people and you don't want them to see your previous entries, you need to disable autocomplete in IE. The Internet Explorer AutoComplete feature can be enabled and disabled by following the below steps.

1. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer.

2. Click Tools and then Internet Options.

3. In the Internet Options window click the Content tab.

4. Click the AutoComplete button.

5. Check or uncheck the options you wish have or not have AutoComplete.

The following is a brief explanation of what each of the options are for.

The web addresses check box specifies if you want Internet Explorer to automatically list previously entered internet addresses as you type them in the address bar. Deselect this check box if you don't want IE to list these entries.

The forms check box specifies if you want IE to list entries you've used before when filling in your name and address information in a web form. Deselect the check box to disable this option.

The user names and passwords check box makes IE automatically fill in the username and password information when you are visiting web pages that you have visited before.

Click the "Clear forms" and "Clear passwords" buttons to remove the information that Internet Explorer had previously stored for you.

The text below these buttons indicate that you cannot remove stored web address entries from this dialog. Instead, click the ok button in this "Autocomplete Settings" dialog, then click the "General" tab and click the "Clear History" button. This clears the entire history, you cannot clear individual entries from the history list.

If you want to completely disable autocomplete, click the "Advanced" tab in the Internet Options dialog, scroll down to "Use Inline Autocomplete" and deselect the check box.
