    Autofill for email addresses (Home Ed, SP2)

    Hi folks,

    Don't know if this is the right spot for this question, but here goes anyway. It concerns the "autofill" function that sometimes offers previously typed strings when filling in online forms. The one that I am specifically interested in is the email address list that is offered.

    I am often offered two email addresses when I start to fill in an online form. One of them is my old work email address that is no longer valid. I would like to clear that address from wherever it is living so that I might substitute an address that is still valid, but I don't know where to go to find the address "garage."

    I have searched the registry for the defunct address but had no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    TIA, Douglas

    I have been told you can clear individual Autocomplete entries by clicking them with your mouse and then pressing the Delete key on your keyboard, I don't use this feature so can't test it myself.

    You can clear the complete Autocomplete list from
    Tools > Internet Options > Content > Autocomplete...
    You can choose Clear Forms, Passwords or both.
