Windows 7: IE9 Search suggestions not showing

IE9 Search suggestions not showing

In IE8 when I typed something in my search bar it gave suggestion based on what I had typed so far but IE9 is not doing that...is there something I have to do to enable this? I double checked and all my search providers are selected to use their search suggestions so I am confused....I currently am using Yahoo as my provider if that matters.

In the drop down for IE's address box there is a "link" to turn on site suggestions...

The little downward arrow thing? If yes, then it says "show address bar autocomplete" when I hover over it but yet it does not give any suggestions.

Hello Edilee,

In addition, this can help give you more details on how to enable search suggestions in IE9.

Hope this helps,

Clicking on the arrow should show your history and there is (was on mine) a link at the very bottom for turning on suggestions. Maybe you need to type a fewchars into the address box before hitting the little down arrow...

I had the autocomplete option shut off when I had IE8 for the address bar and this was preventing search suggestions from popping up so I have it solved now. Thanks!
