Specs: Windows XP

Is there a way to increase the number of entries saved in the IE 8 URL address bar drop down list. Mine seems tgo be at it's max at 12 entries.
I have increased the number of days history to save by a substantial number, but that does not change my drop down list size, it remains at 12 no matter how many new sites i visit.

Thanks for any help

You can increase the maximum number of addresses in the drop-down list to 25, but it will only include addresses that you've previously typed in, not addresses that you visited via a web-link or pasted into the address-bar, nor will it include favourites. It seems you have to forego those if you want to have more than 12 entries.

If that's okay, do this to set it up:

In IE8, click on Tools >> Internet Options
Click the 'Content' tab
In 'AutoComplete' section, click 'Settings'
Where it says "Use AutoComplete for..."
Tick "Address Bar"
Untick the other four autocomplete options indented below it.

Click 'OK' and 'OK' again.

You may have to restart IE8 to see the changes in action.
