hello

this may sound like a stupid question and easy one to solve.

with the address bar when i start to type something in just with the first letter say w.

then underneath it lists all the things starting with w i have looked at.

how do you get rid of that.

hope you can understand my question.

Normally you can clear the run list by clicking the "clear" button in the start menu properties window.
(I.E. Start>Settings>Taskbar and Start Menu>Start Menu>Customize>Clear.)
Depending on the start menu you're using, steps may vary a little to get there.

Why do you care that the "Run" applet stores what you have previously run?
That is a convenience so you can just select things you use often so you don't have to retype them all the time.
