Registry Editing Tips

Enrich AutoComplete URLs

When you type in an incomplete URL into Explorer's URL bar, the browser's AutoComplete will help you continue the rest of the work. However, the number of entries are limited to only .com, .org and .edu sites only.

Run the registry editor and open up HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate You will find six strings with their respective entries. Add some more keys for .net, .gov or your country's extension.

Note: AutoComplete can tend to slow down after your history folder starts to fill with URL's. To get your AutoComplete back up and running faster, you will need to clean our your history folder.
