  1. IE11 address bar suggestions


    I prefer IE11 over edge but one thing I noticed is when I start typing an address or search term in the address bar I only get a list of some historical sites. There is no drop down showing any suggestions (which I see on my other Windows 7 machine). If I type a word and press enter the search does work as the results are all displayed in the main browser window. It's just the drop down suggestions as you type I am wondering about. Does the feature even work on Windows 10? I thought it would of been enabled by default - how does one enable this feature? I'm not bothered if it's Bing or google powered, would just like it to work.

    cheers

  5. Thank you for the suggestion. I'll give that a try later tonight when back at home. Seems strange it's not enabled as default but I'll take a look. I've got a horrible sense that when I look I will find it's already ticked - but just not working!!!

    No problem, if it's already ticked, just do a reset in Advanced tab, there are a few glitches in IE11 since the last updates.
