Please disregard that part - I should assumd that it is not Internet explorer at fault, but the web sites I am visiting. Still, its a darn annoying thing - any way that we could get Idaho to change its name to something starting with a 'Q'?
While we are getting off into the world of Microsoft and little tricks...
You know how in Internet Explorer you will get suggestions to autocomplete what you have started typing based on prior entries (instead of typing '
' every time, you only have to type in 'www.g' and internet explorer will pop up a list of all the sites you've visited that have start with a 'g')? Same for outlook - all I have to do is start typing 'todd' and it will suggest Todd Trein, even though I might not have written to him in a year. The problem is that the lists can start getting really long, be full of stuff you will never use any more, and if you misspell something once it will always be in the darn suggestion list.
To delete stuff from that list, just hover your cursor over the item in the list and, without touching any mouse buttons, hit delete.
I just thought that was a neat tip, and wish soemone had told me (I had to search forever through a lot of websites to find that simple, useful little function). Maybe soemone else will find it as useful.
I have the same problem with Main, Maryland, Massachusetts. I have lived in both Michigan and Minnesota, but did you know that most of the time if you type "I" again it will normally go to the next state starting with "I" this way Idaho can stay Idaho and not confuse us all. Where would the good potatoes come from Quidaho Potato I wouldn't know what to do. Just think what the Montana and North Dakota people go through.
