Question about Internet & Communication Software

AutoFill feature of Internet Browser.

The AutoFill icon has within it an old email address. How do I change that old address. I have tried TOOLS / Intenet Conections and the General Tab. Those areas only delete AutoFill data on forms and passwords. How do I change the old email address?

    When using AutoFill the email address entered is wrong. I did highlight that field on a form but when pressing the down arrow, there is no list of address'. There is nothing I can delete. I can delete the old address in the selected field and add my new address but the next time I use AutoFill I get the old email address again.

    I still have the problem with Windows Internet Browser 7 - the AutoFill icon. I have tried Tools-Options-General Tab and deleted Forms, Passwords, Temp files and Cookies. I still have the old email address inserted when I use the AutoFill.

    DWARFSOFT: Thanks for your input, your comments helped me realize what I am looking at is a "Google" tool bar at the top of my browser page. I did find a way to change the settings and I think my problem is solved. Thanks again.

In Internet Explorer you can select the field that has the email address in it, press the down arrow key to highlight an address in the list, and hit the delete key to remove that address from ever being used (until it is reentered into that box that is).

    So you have gone into Tools-Options-General tab. Then clicked on the Delete Button. Out of the Options have you done the "Delete Forms"? "Delete Passwords"? If you have tried both of those, have you then tried "Delete Cookies"? It may be that the email address is being loaded from a cookie in the Browsers cookie folder.

    Give that a try and see how you go.

  • Chris Bennett Apr 25, 2008

    What is confusing me is where you say "when I use AutoFill". This sounds like it is a seperate piece of software, as ranvens was alluding to. You may need to open up that software or plugin and clear out the stored data in there. If you have already cleared out this Data in the General Tab then it is most likely not Internet Explorers fault.

    Additionally, try uninstalling the plugin by going to control panel->add remove programs and trying to find it in there (may be called "AutoFill" or something like that).

How do I change my pop up settings?


Given below are steps to pop up settings: Step 1 If you are in Microsoft Windows explorer and wish to disable your Pop-Up Blocker, then you will need to click on Tools at the top of the screen, scroll down and click on Pop-Up Blocker and then click to Turn off Pop-Up Blocker.
  • Step 2 In Mozilla or FireFox, the Pop-Up Blocker is within the browser. First you will need to go to your Tools menu and click on Options. From there, click on Web Features and then remove the check from the block that says "Block Popup Windows". Once you have done that and click OK, then you should be ready to view your site with Pop-Ups enabled.
  • Step 3 In the Safari Browser you can change your Pop-Up settings by going to the menu and selecting the Preferences options. Once you have done this, you can then select the Security options. Remove the check-mark from Block Pop-Up Windows and you are done.
  • Step 4 In Netscape you will access your Pop-Up Blocker from the Edit menu. Select Edit, then select Preferences. Next, click beside the Privacy and Security option and you will then see the Pop-Up Windows option.
    You can then change the settings as you would like.
  • Step 5 The Google Toolbar also has an icon across the top showing pop-ups that have been blocked. If you are unsure which icon to click on, hover over them first and your browser will reveal what the icon is for without you having to click on it. Clicking on the pop-up icon does allow you to change this setting in the google toolbar.
  • Step 6 jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/rt/4a/change-pop-up-blocker-settings-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); The Yahoomag-glass_10x10.gif Tool bar will show an icon that needs to be clicked on from the Tool Bar as well. This Icon will look like the one to the side. Click on this icon and you will be able to uncheck the " Enable Pop-Up Blocker" verbiage.
  • Step 7 If you are using AOL, then the tool bar will show the word "Blocked" on it. This is in regards to the pop-ups and will showcase the total number of pop-ups blocked thus far. To change this setting to allow pop-ups, click on it and it will switch from blocking them to allowing them through.
  • Step 8 Virus Protection Software that you have enabled on your computer may also have Pop-Up Blockers within it. You may have to pull up your Menu Page of your Software, usually accessible through your desktop, and allow your pop-ups through your Virus/Spyware Protection.

    I want to access my work outlook express email at home


    It depends on what your company has set up. Some companies have what's called 'Outlook Web Access'. You go to a site and login, and can do all of your email right there. You don't use outlook itself, but a browser version. So, ask if you have this set up, and if so get the URL info and start working from home! if you can access your work email within outlook, the answer is no. A very easy way to have all your messages forwarded to your home outlook is to create a rule from your work computer. Do this: (may vary somewhat depending on the OS you are using) in outlook go to tools/ rules/ create new rule and create a rule so all mail in your inbox or specific senders is forwarded to your home address.
    Such as all mail addressed to (your work email address) forward to (your home email address) You can always delete the rule later.
