I would like to selectively delete certain addresses (such as incorrectly spelled ones, etc.) from the drop-down list, short of deleting the entire history.

Deleting temporary internet files in Internet Options (under Tools) doesn't seem to do the trick, and they don't show up in "history."

I hope I made myself clear...

TIA,

Trudy

If you are using Windows
Try deleting the selected entries in the Registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/InternetExplorer/TypedURL/

Not directly Feb 15, 2004

This URL list is stored into the window's registry and there are no way to edit from IE directly.
They can edit using regedit but it's very very dangerous.
Perhaps there are some utilities that can edit these list.

You are right, this one does it: www.fadsoft.com/address_url_editor.htm
But I don't know how long it will work.

Just keep clicking on the ones you want to keep Feb 15, 2004

Just keep clicking on the ones you want to keep - they will eventually push the other URLs off of the bottom of the list.

If you take care not to delet the wrong entries, it is safer than driving a car where accidents may happen due to someone elses fault. Not with the registry. If you do not make a mistake yourself no one can harm you.

Use the favorites Feb 16, 2004

1) Add the URLs that you want to the favorites (Favorites / Add to favorites),
2) Keep the explorerer bar with the favorites visible
(View / Explorer Bar / Favorites)
