Make Internet Explorer’s Address Bar Autocomplete Display More Recently-Entered URLs

In Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser, when we click the blue autocomplete arrow at the end of the address bar, a list of web addresses previously entered is displayed. The drop-down menu also displays URLs from the browser’s history and favorites. Since there is not enough room to display them all, IE9 displays only 5 recently-entered web addresses. In previous versions (IE8), Internet Explorer could display more addresses. If you are more used to opening a web address ever entered in this way you will find that 5 recently entered URLs is too less. Fortunately, you can make Internet Explorer display more web addresses.


Here’s how to do it.

In IE9, click the "Tool" button on the right of the address bar, and then select "Internet Options".


In the "Content" tab in Internet options, click the "Settings" button for AutoComplete.


In the Autocomplete Settings window, uncheck "Browsing history" and "Favorites". Press "OK" to save changes and exit.


With history and favorites disabled from appearing in the Autocomplete list, the IE9 address bar now has more room to display additional recently-entered web addresses.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event.

However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
