Customize Address Bar?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Boboskedeeten, Jan 29, 2008.

  1. Ok, I think I have the name right, but the address bar in Windows Explorer in
    Vista holds a cache of your Websites and servers that were visited recently.
    For example: http://msn.com and \\fileserver1\share. I want that bar to
    ONLY show websites, not servers or local paths.
    Does anyone have any pointers on how I can adjust that?

    Thanks
    Bob

    Hi,
    The Address Bar should only store URLs, file paths, etc. which are typed or
    pasted into the Address Bar.

    If you browse to files, folders, servers they shouldn't end up in this
    TypedURLs list (a registry key.) However... despite my best efforts, I
    occasionally find a file path in the list.

    You can clean up the list manually
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=157729 (old article but still
    applicable) or try this free program
    EditURLs http://www.aandrc.com/editurls/index.htm

    Hope this helps,
    Don
