Note that Internet Explorer 4.x uses inline AutoComplete for Web addresses and commands or folder names. This functionality of the AutoComplete feature provides suggestions for what you are typing by automatically completing the address or command inline with the closest match. By default, this functonality is enabled in Windows Explorer and disabled for Web addresses in Internet Explorer 5 (and replaced by a drop-down list).
To enable the inline AutoComplete feature for Web addresses, follow these steps in Internet Explorer:
On the Tools menu, click Internet Options .
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Browsing , click the to select the Use inline AutoComplete for Web addresses check box, and then click OK.
Note that disabling the AutoComplete feature for Web addresses (see the "Adjusting AutoComplete Settings" section of this article) and enabling inline AutoComplete for Web addresses enables the same AutoComplete behavior as in Internet Explorer 4.x.
NOTE : If the inline AutoComplete feature is enabled for Web addresses, addresses that do not include a resource identifier prefix (for example, http://
) are not automatically completed. To work around this issue, either specify the resource identifier prefix for Web addresses for which you want to use the inline AutoComplete feature, or disable the AutoComplete feature for Web addresses and use only inline AutoComplete (Internet Explorer 4.x AutoComplete).
