    Can someone tell me how to turn off autocomplete in MSN Explorer? I know how to do it in Internet Explorer but that won't work on MSN Explorer!

    I have never tried it - but:

    What happens if you go:
    Tools
    Inernet Options
    Content
    Auto Complete
    and uncheck all options???

    Like I said I never tried this - so let us know what happens!

    haha don't listen to iceman, I have no idea what he's talking about.

    Damnyank is right. Go under the "tools" "internet options" "content" then "auto complete" and uncheck the areas you don't want to use auto complete. Might be a good idea to clear the clear forms and passwords as well.

    wbeach what do u mean don't listen to iceman?

    If u had bothered to read Tdoan14 post, Tdoan14 ain't talking about IE, which u can turn off the autocomplete function, however, Tdoan14 is talking about MSN Explorer which u can't turn off the autocomplete.

    That information is from MSN itself, so in the future I suggest you read and understand what the person is asking, before you open your mouth.

    If I'm proven wrong, I will offer an apology :p

    hes talkin about MSN Explorer not MS Internet Explorer.

    Though in theory, MSN explorer uses the same internet options as IE, so if you edit the IE internet options then they should follow through to MSN explorer.

    Anybody know if they have fixed the @ symbol problem, where if you were to press the button for the @ symbol it would go back in the history. Think this mainly affected non US keyboards, this shows how global the testing of some M$ stuff is doesnt it. You think they would say this when you download. Only works fully with a US keyboard Layout.

    haha sorry dude my mistake.

    I would love to offer a solution to your problem, but personally I don't like msn. Doesn' it appear as a AOL rip off?
