Which browser are you using to log in to your gmail account?
Thank You.Google Chrome automatically saves all your inputs from forms you filled out in the past. To delete these entries, please follow these steps:
OK go ahead
Click the "Wrench" icon on the browser's toolbar
Select "Clear browsing data"
In the dialog that appears, select the "Clear saved Autofill form data" checkbox.
Use the menu on the top to select the amount of data you want to delete. Select the beginning of time to clear everything.
Click Clear browsing data.
This will delete all entries that are currently saved in your AutoFill list
If you don't want to use the AutoFill feature anymore in the future, you can disable it
To disable the AutoFill feature completely:
Can I select several accounts that don't automatically appear in drop down menu?
or is it all or nothing?
To delete a specific piece of saved text, select it in the menu using the arrows on your keyboard, then press Shift+Delete.
OK thomas what about the same for skype drop down menu?
Does this drop down menu appear in the Skype application?
When you choose your user name?
Don't follow. Prior to login, as you open skype home page any previous user login name appears in drop down menu. I want to remove old names and stop others appearing all the time apart from mine.
So this happens when you visit the website www.skype.com and click on "Sing in" ?
or does it happen when you open the Skype program that is installed on your computer?
Skype recognise my IP? address and prior to log in it gives me a drop down menu with everyones skype name that has logged in via my PC or lap top
OK, so this should be the Skype program
Deleting user names from this list is a bit more complicated
Please follow these steps:
I want to permanently remove several user names and type in manually each time
Open any folder or "My Computer" from the desktop
In the top part of the window in the address bar input %appdata%\skype and press Enter
This should bring up the folder that contain all saved user accounts
Please tell me when you get there
i'm not doing now just making notes. I've tried this part before in 'run' %appdata%\skype and found the file. however it doesn't allow me to delete the file as it says someone else is using it, which Im not as it is closed.
This is the procedure that should work
You should delete the folders that contain the other user names
If you still get the message that it is being used, make sure that no hidden Skype process is running
You can check by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then opening the "Task Manager"
In the Task Manager, click the "processes" tab
Look for processes that have "Skype" in their name, select them and click on "End Process"
Then try again to delete the folders
I assume this clears all names in drop down menu. OK i can reinstall the ones I want but what about the ones I use but don't want to appear in the drop down?
Skype will always show you all the Skype accounts that are saved on your computer. You can only delete the entries by deleting the user's folder from %appdata%\skype
Even if you delete a user folder you should still be able to log in using this user name as long as you know the password
OK so I should delete after each time I use it so it doesn't appeaer to other users
even if the user name doesn't appear in the list
Yes, if you don't want the used user names to appear, you will have to delete the user folder every time
No , Sorry if its not in the list thats great. I want to be able to sign in with user name and password XXXXX time.
This is always possible
When you start Skype, you can uncheck the "Sign me in when Skype starts" checkbox
This will keep Skype from logging you in automatically
