Turn off Autocomplete on form fields

User Rating:  / 0
The autocomplete feature of form fields in Internet Explorer (IE) supports various form elements including name, email addresses, addresses, and passwords. If enabled, autocomplete feature lists possible matches for the entries website visitors have typed before in the web based form fields with the same field names.

Use the following code to turn off autocomplete on all fields in a form where it might be undesirable for form fields to suggest based on prior entries, such as on public computers or where various users use the same computer to access the form:

<form AUTOCOMPLETE="OFF"> 
<input type="text" name="name" />

Find your Outlook Files

User Rating:  / 0
Moving your email over to another computer and use Outlook? Wondering where your Outlook Files are stored in Windows XP or Wimdows Vista?

Here you go:
In Windows XP, email data is usually stored here:
C:\Documents and Settings\*Username*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

"Local Settings" is a hidden folder.

So, in order to access,
"C:\Documents and Settings\*Username*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook"

While in Windows Explorer
1. Click on "Tools" in the top menu
2. drop-down and click on "Folder Options"
3. On Folder Option window, click on "View"
4. put dot next to "Show hidden files and folders"
5. click "Apply" then "OK"

Now, users will be able to see the folders and files in "Local Settings"

In Windows Vista, email data is usually stored here:
C:\users\*Username*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
