Clearing the browser's address bar



How do I clear the drop down menu in my browser's address bar?



If you are using Windows 98 or later, you can normally clear all personal lists by going to Start, Settings, Task Bar, and choose the tab at the top marked Start Menu Programs. Then choose Clear Documents. This clears your documents list as well as your address history.

In most Internet Explorer versions, the box of addresses that drops down from the address bar can be cleared when you clear the History. To clear history:
  • Go to the Tools menu and choose Options.
  • On the top tabs select General.
  • Click the button marked Clear History.
  • Click OK.




If you have Netscape Communicator of version 4.06 or above, there is an option for clearing this menu as well. To access that option do the following:

  • Go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences.
  • On the left select Navigator.
  • Click the button marked Clear Location Bar.
  • Click OK.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
