Windows 7: Icons have doubled in size and no History in IE9

23 Jan 2011   #11

windows 7 home premium

Yes maybe so but until last week I have been quite happy with IE.

Today there is no history AT ALL and I have been on at least 20 sites in the last 2 hours.

Cant find anywhere to change things so am at a loss.

Have never had this trouble ever in the last 15 years of using IE

Tried a restore back to last week but still no go.
I have a cure and it is a strange one!

Tools-Internet Options-Content-Autocomplete-Settings

Untick the box use "Windows search for better results"

Just tried it on mine and visited about 20 websites and they are in my history.

I do not remember actually ticking this box so I wonder if a Windows Update did it??

Doubled up Icons
For quite some time I have had doubled up icons in 2 places. That is one icon sitting on top of the same icon. I need to attach pictures. See below. I guess it doesn't hurt anything, but it really bugs me. Windows 7. The one photos is a game. The start icon is double all the time.
