I wanted to know how can I clear my auto complete when you go to File/Search
for Files and folders. When I begin to type any words to search for in In
the field "Search for Files or folders Name" it will try to autocomplete the
name for me from previous searches I have done. How can I clear the
previous searches and how can I disable this feature?
