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'?
I believe that in Internet Explorer, or any other Web browser, you could
type in "I" multiple times to scroll through the "I" list. Someone correct
me on this if I'm wrong.
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
'www.google.com' 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
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.
"Just think what the Montana and North Dakota
people go through."
Montana people can press 'N' then the up arrow once. North Dakota
people can press 'O' then the up arrow once.
I live in Maryland and usually only have to hit 'M' twice, but
sometimes I end up with 'Marshall Islands'.
