Internet Explorer 7 appears to have some problems with the autocomplete function. Even after ticking evey box under the AutoComplete options in IE 7 i still coulnt get it to remember previous forms I had filled. This annoyance eluded me for quite some time but recently I discovered a simple registry edit to turn it back on.

  1. Click on Start button
  2. Click on Run
  3. Type regedit, in RegEdit use the search function to find the term FormSuggest
  4. Double click on Use FormSuggest
  5. Change value from no to yes (on some computers the value may appear as a DWORD value. If this is the case for you, change the value from 0 to 1)
  6. You may need to restart computer for changes to take affect.

Here is a screenshot from my computer:

AutoComplete IE7 Registry Fix

Let me know if this fixes IE7 on your computer!
