Proposals in the run menu and explorer's addressbar
Hi!

When you opened the run... Dialog in Win XP and started typing 'c:\w'
Windows automatically proposed you all folders and files under 'c:\' starting
with 'w'. The same was possible in explorer's address bar. This option seems
to be gone in Win Vista. Is there a way to get this back? This was a really
efficient way to find and open or run files or folders. I really miss this
feature.

Please advice.

Thanks

Bernd

When you go to Start on the taskbar and type the c:\ in the "Start
search" field - does that work the way you want.
OR
you can Right-click on the "Start" icon on the taskbar. Select
Properties.
click the radio button "Classic Start menu". Run is available and I
think it works the way you want it.

Hi George,

Thanks for your reply.
Start search does more or less behave the way I looked for. Thanks.
However this does not work for the run menu or in Explorer's address bar. Do
you know how to enable it there?

Thanks

Hi Bernd,

Try this.
In Internet Explorer. On the menu ...Click TOOLS then INTERNET OPTIONS
Click the CONTENTS tab
You should see a section named "AUTOCOMPLETE". Click the SETTINGS
Button.
Click on the option "Web Address Option
Click on the option "User Names ..." etc
Hope that helps

Hi Bernd.

I just thought of this
If you go to Start and type run into the search field you will get the
"old" run facility

That may be useful

Hi!

To solve my problem I had to query the registry. After setting

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete]
"AutoSuggest"="yes"

(it has been no before) it worked as expected :-)

Thanks

Bernd
