Default computer question.

Something has changed on my computer. An example is that if i do a search on Craigslist one time when i go back to the site and start typing in the search box the same word i searched for earlier it used to automatically show the word with the stroke of the first letter. Now if i search i have to type the whole word in. I have looked and looked and changed settings but i can't seem to get it to work again. Do ya'll have any ideas?

Scott, Open google homepage, look in upper right area of Google page for "Search Settings"................scroll down and make sure "Auto complete" is checked................. Can't remember if there is a "Save Changes" button at bottom, if there is one......click on it.................................Hope this helped

Another thing that will cause this is if you have deleted the cookies recently. The cookies are what will remember what you have previously searched.
