Enabling Inline AutoComplete for Windows Explorer (XP)

When I’m going through folders on my computer, I like to have the ability to type what I’m looking for in the address bar and have suggestions come up. My old computer would do it automatically, but when I got a new one, it was disabled. Here’s how to turn it back on (or off if you’re some sort of freak):

To enable the Inline AutoComplete feature:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, point to Control Panel, and then click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Advanced tab, and then click to select the Use inline AutoComplete check box.
  3. Click OK.
