I was speaking with a Norton anti-virus rep.who told me that this is info stored on "cloud" and is not actually stored in my pc.-this may be incorrect. These prompt words appear when I click on a search bar ei. hotmail, a name I once emailed and long since deleted in every aspect would pop-up as an automatic insert once I enter a single letter, which also is the beginning of the name I want to erase that I no longer email-or any entry bar that calls for an email, always a list of my email accounts will appear which is good as I can choose but always always is one there that no longer exists or an old entry I once typed a typo error still appears in the list. Or a search bar sentence that doesn't seem to have any way to delete. Hope I have explained it out, I can live with it of course, just a bit annoying sometimes. Thanks your reply..

✔ Best Answer
That is called autocomplete/autofill.

Here is a research start.

I just recently found (and wrote about in another thread here)
that something that looked to me was being stored and then
recalled either by Windows or Edge or Bing (I at first thought
it was Google) without my permission or knowledge, was
actually stored by me in a Favorites link. I saved a link to a
web page in Favorites, and months later when I tried to use
Bing to do a new search using the same search term that
turned up the web page, Bing sent me directly to that page.
It took me a long time to discover that I had saved that bit of
information myself.

Maybe something like that happened to you, too. Or not...

A suggested name that appears in a drop down for an email app can usually be deleted by sliding your cursor down to it and clicking the x that appears to the right.

I don't use hotmail, so maybe it's different.

Would you happen to know if I disable both of these will all the email entries (wanted and unwanted) delete themselves after I restart my pc? I was going to do this then turn them both back on..

Nothing will be deleted by turning off autocomplete or
similar related functions.

I expect that your emails are stored in your email provider's
servers, which are the "cloud" you refer to. You can delete
any unwanted emails from those servers and they should
stop showing up when you try to type into the address bar.

If you want, before deleting any old emails, you can download
them to save them on your computer or on an optical disk or
wherever, so that there is no chance of anyone ever seeing
them again unless you choose to look at them.

How to delete them may vary slightly with the email provider
and the email client (email program) you use.

Thanks fir replying I'm good with the email name suggestions from outlook, no issues there for now; this issue is with the auto fill on all sites that' asks for my email, it's just the incorrect email addresses that continues to show up;. annoying but I can live with it if I have to. If there was a way I would try removing them.
