  1. Using the file explorer address bar


    I typed an entry incorrectly into the File Explorer address bar and it gave me a dropdown menu underneath giving me the option to search for it so I selected to search for it (in the address bar not the Search box on the far right).
    I then got a Windows Security window which said Connect to Bing.com (with connecting to Bing.com underneath it). The window was asking for a Username and Password. What username and password was it requesting?... because I clicked on Cancel and was taken to Bing search. Is this normal behaviour? Its something I've never come across before.
    What is the Search option that comes up in the address bar dropdown menu capable of searching for..because it took me straight to Bing?

    :)

    Cannot find Desktop Icon in File Explorer

    Now that is interesting. If I do what you suggest, File Explorer Address bar changes to C:\Users\username\documents and the missing ICONS are there. But there is still not a "Desktop" folder.

    Is this a step in the right direction?

  4. Using the file explorer address bar

    How do I clear my File Explorer address bar history?

    On Google Search, I found the following recent answer to "How do I clear my File Explorer address bar history?" …

    "To delete a single autosuggested URL, start typing the address as you normally would—Google.com in my example. Then, when the unwanted autocomplete suggestion appears, use your keyboard's arrow keys to highlight the suggestion in the drop-down menu below
    the address bar. Finally, press Shift-Delete and poof!Sep 14, 2018"

    I've tried this with the Address Bar in File Explorer and the Address Bar in the Toolbar. The problem here is THIS PROCEDURE DOES NOT WORK for me.

    Does anyone know of an alternative approach which will work?
