  • Explore deleted windows address bar history

    I'm looking to remove some items from the address bar (which shows a history of used files and folders) in windows Explorer (not internet explorer) on Vista. All the forums, I've looked at show how using regedit using the keys ending with "typedURLs' 'typedpaths' 'runMRU' and"WordWheelQuery"- for windows OS OTHER THAN Vista. How this is done under vista with these keys do not exist on my computer?

    WordWheelQuery is specific to Windows 7 and is historic for typing in the search
    boxes. Vista does not keep a story.
    RunMRU is valid since Windows 95. This is the story to start - all the
    Run programs - accessories.
    TypedPath is specific to Windows 7 and is where it stores what you type in the
    address bar.
    TypedURLs is Internet Explorer 4 for Windows Vista.

  • Accidentally deleted address bar/back-front/bookmarks/tools/help/bar area. Help!

    I accidentally deleted my address bar/file/history/tools/etc line, the top of my screen - I did it all by removing the extra toolbars - I don't know where or how to get it back. I did a system restore, but that did not bring him back. I don't know what to do! I had no idea who could be deleted! I have little technical knowledge and did everything I can think of to find it or bring it back.

    In Firefox 3.6 and later Windows, you can hide the "menu bar" by "view > toolbars" or through the context menu on a toolbar.

    Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key to bring up the 'Menu Bar' temporarily.

    Go on "view > toolbars" or right-click the 'menu bar', or press Alt + V T to select the toolbars to show or hide (click on an entry to switch from the State).

  • Remove IE address bar entries

    How can I delete an individual entry in the address bar history?

    It's a little red x to the right of the entry that is displayed when you select the entry.  Highlight and click on him and he removes the entry.  I know there are in IE8, but I'm not 100% certain of IE7.

    If it does not exist in IE7 and you do not want to upgrade, then go to where you can download a software that will do what you want to do (well as far as easily since you will need to open a separate program).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    No matter what you with Firefox in clearing the browser history by going to the history-> delete history, recent and all delete or reset FF by accessing information from troubleshooting, Firefox does not browsing history. The Web site you have traveled still appear in the address bar.

  • I want to delete search suggestions in the drop down menu in the address bar. I don't have swagbucks - is there another solution?

    I want to keep my bookmarks/history in the address bar, but delete the search suggestions that appear. These suggestions have barely started to appear last week, and they are boring and useless! Previous solutions have said that this is related to the swagbucks, but I have this installed (and don't know what it is). How can I remove the search suggestions, but keep my history and bookmarks?

    Make sure that you use the address bar and not the search bar.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.

  • I want to delete search suggestions in the drop down menu in the address bar.

    I've just updated Firefox to 22.0 and now when I type something in the address bar, the menu drop-down displays search suggestions. I used to be able to type a letter or two from the site that I wanted to go to and just press enter and Firefox automatically I would have it if it was the first thing on the list. However, now it is more complicated because the search suggestions appear as well as elements in my story. Is there a way to delete these suggests research?

    I had the same problem. If you have not installed, the toolbar for swagbucks what you need to do is to click on the arrow to the right of the swagbucks icon and go to the "toolbar options". Under Advanced settings, there will be an option that says 'enable search suggestions in the address bar '. Make sure it is not selected, and your problem should be solved.
