Windows 7: Internet Explorer - Address Bar - List of previous entries

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Internet Explorer - Address Bar - List of previous entries

Hi. I'm new on this site, so hello to everyone !

My problem is not a showstopper, but annoying just the same. At one time, when I clicked on the little down arrow at the r/h end of the address bar, it showed an extensive list (about 20) of the previous URLs typed into the address bar. This was great as it showed most of the sites I visit regularly. Now, however, for some reason, it only shows 5 and I can't find any way to change this. I cannot seem to enlarge the box like you can with most windows. I also have no idea why this change has occurred. Can anyone help or have any suggestions please ? Many thanks in advance.

Hello Sadler, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you have the drop down list opened from the address bar in IE, look to see if you see another drop down arrow to the right in that list that would expand the history list like below.

Name:  IE11_history.jpg

As for the suggestions from your typed history at the top of the list in the screenshot above, they will populate based on what you type in the address bar.

Hope this helps,
