Is autocomplete data editable? These days you have to fill out everything down to your inside leg measurement just to ask a simple question and it has gone from a nice to an essential feature. There is a lot of old data that could be deleted or updated.

Chosen solution

It is, but the process is complicated and needs an add-on for accessing the form history database file.

If you need to remove saved data then use these steps:

  1. Click the (empty) input field on the web page to open the drop down list
  2. Highlight an entry in the drop down list
  3. Press the Delete key (on Mac: Shift+Delete) to remove it.

Thanks for your help - the add-on is easy to use and very revealing! Happy Christmas! Richard
