Filling In Forms and Remembering Passwords

Internet Explorer doesn’t have a mind-reading module, but it is capable of remembering things you type when working with Web pages, thanks to a feature called AutoComplete. Using AutoComplete, Internet Explorer can remember Web addresses, search terms, logon names, phone numbers, and even passwords you’ve previously entered on a given page. With the click of a mouse, you can recall the saved values instead of having to retype them. If you decide this feature is a worthwhile timesaver, you might want to make a few changes to make it more useful.
