Transcript:How to Disable AutoComplete in Netscape
Hello, I’m Brian Smith for About.com here to show you how to better control or disable the AutoComplete feature in Netscape Navigator.
Disable a Single AutoComplete Entry
The AutoComplete feature can be handy when visiting websites you’ve gone to before or completing forms with similar fields in the past. The first thing I’m going to point out is how to delete a saved entry. On this page, if I begin to type Brian, you will see a couple of saved entries; one is misspelled. To delete the misspelled entry, just hover your mouse over the entry and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Now that entry is gone.
Disable the AutoComplete History
If you want to delete the saved data collected by the AutoComplete feature, activate the Tools pull-down menu and select Options. This will open the Options dialog box with many Tabs to change the settings. Click on the Privacy Tab and at the bottom you’ll see a Private Data area. I’m going to click the Clear Now button and select the options for the data I’d like to delete. In this case, we would delete the Saved Form and Search History.
Turn Off AutoComplete
Finally, if we wanted to disable the AutoComplete feature all together, I’m going to Uncheck the “Remember what I enter in Forms and the Search Bar. That’s it! Now the AutoComplete feature is disabled. To learn more, make sure you visit us on the web at compute.about.com
