[IE8] Address bar history drop-down menu does not show up

In IE7, when I typed in a URL in the address bar, I could click on that down arrow and go back to the URL without typing it again. In IE8 there is no drop-down menu showing. URL history is turned on as I can view it when I click on the Favorites icon, and then click the history tab.

Also, is anybody else having difficulties not being able to open WMV files? This problem also occured once I installed IE8. Thank you.

No problem with my IE8 URL address bar...works like the previous except for one improvement. You can delete single
entries which is a new feature I like.

Address Bar
For your Address bar to work see if you can have "Address Bar" ticked in the AutoComplete Settings:

Go to Tools > Internet Options > Content > AutoComplete (Settings) and tick "Address Bar".

I've included a screen capture.

Couldn't you alway delete prior entries by using the down arrow and hitting the delete button? You can do the same for most drop downs in Windows and I think IE4>7 was the same way, wasn't it?

I have never been able to delete single entries before.
I have tried numerous time to no avail.

Ah... I stand corrected. I just tried - and FAILED! (I don't use much IE any more, so I had to dust it off first).

You right - that does not work in IE7...
