You know, we begin typing something into the search box but google steps in and adds words we don't want, so we have to delete the unwanted bits.

Go to Settings (lower right) and tick the last option if you meant google search engine.

Something I learned today.  Click on the 3 bars upper right hand corner.  Go to settings.  Scroll down to and click advanced settings.  First one should be auto-complete info.  Check or remove check to get desired action.  Hope this helps if it's what you wanted.  Note the auto-password section too in case you might need it.

Please turn this off google.  Yes it is a reason to use a different search engine.  If people wanted this with no option they would have accepted it two years ago.
