How does one delete all the entries in the scroll boxes that are accumulated
over use?

TIA, Bill

Hi Bill,

AutoComplete:
IE/Tools/Internet Options/Content/AutoComplete/Clear AutoComplete history

Start/Search/Change Preferences/Turn AutoComplete off

Clear Form Fields in AutoComplete (Line 38)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Control the AutoComplete Mode (Line 38)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Added info:

This process works and clears them from run also:

Clear IE History, AutoComplete, Clear the TIF, Clear the RunMRU, Typed URL's
and Clear List (depending on which Start Menu you are using): Right click
the Start button/Properties/Customize/Advanced/Recent Documents/Clear List.

Temp Files: IE/Tools/Internet Options/Delete Temporary Internet Files
Temp Files: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp & TIF
Cookies: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Cookies
History: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\History

Thank you, Kelly, for the response. Your site looks great! However, I think
I confused things. My situation is that when I go to various sites using
Internet Explorer, I'm presented with a dialog box. If I put different
things in the boxes, IE then gives me a scroll bar so that the next time I
can choose my entry, provided I've already provided it. It is this
information that I wish to delete so that I can start over.

Thanks,

Bill

You are most welcome, Bill and thank you!

"IF", I am understanding you correctly, this seems to be related to saved
fields. If this is correct, I have already provided you with the proper
info. Feel free to add any extra info and good luck!
