    10 results per page

    Q1: What is this 2M file netscape.HST doing in my folder, and can I delete it with impunity?


    Q2: I was hunting for a way to change my default settings from "10 results per page" to something a little more reasonable, like "25". Does anyone have knowledge of where the setting is stored?

    Thanks.

    Re: 10 results per page

    A1 -- It appears to be your HiSTory file, and yes, it appears you can delete with no ill result. I have a test account -- deleted for that user, signed on as that user with no issues. Drop down of places visited appeared OK. Exited and the file reappeared.

    A2: Are you referring to search results? I would presume that setting would be determined by your search engine.

    A1. Thanks for running the test. I'dd delete the file after my early-morning backup tomorrow.

    A2. Thank you. I guess I must be spending more time sleeping at the controls than I had thought. I am in HotBot TextOnly. That's where the limit arises.

    I don't suppose that you're smart enough to work out how I could tell a Lycos cookie that I'm big enough for 25 results? (grin!)

    Re: 10 results per page

    That's interesting. When I go to HotBot the left side of the page gives options, including number of results to display per page. Maybe you're going a different route? I just typed hotbot.com in the address bar and got the default search screen. If you have Lycos set as your home page, that may be interfering with it. Just a thought.

    Me too. I always bump it up to 25, It's what 17" monitors are for.

    I was wanting to set it to 25 by default, but as you will have read this is the balliwick of the HotBot site, noit my copy of netscapr4.7.
