Windows 10: IE11 address bar suggestions

    IE11 address bar suggestions


    I prefer IE11 over edge but one thing I noticed is when I start typing an address or search term in the address bar I only get a list of some historical sites. There is no drop down showing any suggestions (which I see on my other Windows 7 machine). If I type a word and press enter the search does work as the results are all displayed in the main browser window. It's just the drop down suggestions as you type I am wondering about. Does the feature even work on Windows 10? I thought it would of been enabled by default - how does one enable this feature? I'm not bothered if it's Bing or google powered, would just like it to work.

    cheers

    Thank you for the suggestion. I'll give that a try later tonight when back at home. Seems strange it's not enabled as default but I'll take a look. I've got a horrible sense that when I look I will find it's already ticked - but just not working!!!

    No problem, if it's already ticked, just do a reset in Advanced tab, there are a few glitches in IE11 since the last updates.
