How to Restore Auto Fill


The term "Auto Fill" technically refers to a feature on the Google Toolbar and the Google Chrome Web browser. However, Web browsers often have a similar feature, usually known as "Auto Complete." Regardless of what it's called, this feature remembers your user names, passwords and other information (such as credit card numbers or other data entered into Web forms). If the feature is not working, and you'd like to get it back, you can enable it easily.

Restoring Google Toolbar's Auto Fill

  • Click on the "Wrench" icon on your Google Toolbar, and then select "Options."

  • Click on the far-right tab labeled "Auto Fill." Check the box next to "Auto Fill" to enable the feature.

  • Click "Add New" to create your Auto Fill profile. Enter your name, address and email; click "Save."

    You can also add a credit card to your Auto Fill profile. If you want to do this, click "Credit Card" and type the necessary information.

Restoring Google Chrome's Auto Fill

  • Click on the "Wrench" icon in the upper-right corner of your Chrome browser window.

  • Select "Options" from the list, and then click on the tab labeled "Personal Stuff."

  • Click on "Form Auto Fill" and select "Save Text From Forms to Make Them Easier to Fill Out." Click "Close" to save the changes.

Restoring Internet Explorer's Auto Complete

  • Click on "Tools" on the Internet Explorer tool bar. Select "Internet Options" from the list.

  • Click on the "Privacy" tab, and then scroll down to "Auto Complete." Click on "Settings."

  • Place a check mark next to all the items you want to use Auto Complete for (Web forms, address bar, user name and passwords). Click "OK."

Restoring Firefox's Auto Complete

  • Click on "Tools" on the Firefox tool bar. Select "Options" from the list.

  • Click on the tab labeled "Security." Click the box next to "Remember" to enable the auto complete feature.

  • Click on "Exceptions" if you want to exclude certain websites from this feature. Otherwise, Firefox's auto complete will remember your user name and password.
