Over time, however, some unwanted information can get added to the auto-fill options. Perhaps I made a typo when entering my address, or a sweepstake that required a code expired and I don't need to enter it anymore, or I filled out an information request form for a relative one time and I don't want to see her email address as an option every time I enter a sweepstake. So how can I easily remove this information from my auto-fill options?
Removing Auto-Fill Options in Internet ExplorerIn the Internet Explorer browser, all you need to do is:
- Double-click in the text field so the drop-down box of auto-fill options appears.
- Hold your mouse over the option that you want to remove from auto-fill so that it's highlighted. Don't click on it.
- Press your delete key. The option should be deleted from your auto-fill.
Deleting Auto-Fill Entries in Firefox
If you are using the Firefox browser, you follow the same steps except that you hold down shift while pressing delete in the third step. And that's it - it's that easy to remove unwanted entries from your auto-fill options.
