Mods please move if this is in the wrong area.

Just a quick request for help with this...when I click on the FC username box to login, a number of username suggestions appear but I can not seem to be able to delete and get shut of these :@ .

Any of the mods or fellow FCers know how you do this please?

Many thanks inadvance.

This is nothing to do with Fighter Control itself, but rather a memory store on your own computer or within the browser you use.

I have got rid of similar suggestions in such boxes in the past by either hovering over them with the mouse or by using the arrow keys and then hitting Shift + Delete at the same time once the entry is highlighted. If that fails maybe try Ctrl + Delete, but I have had incidences where I can't seem to delete them at all.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like your browser has autofill settings enabled. Normally found in settings (or just look it up for your browser - I guess Chrome?).

Either turn these off or clear cookies and cache from the browser should sort it out.

Copy and paste this in to your address bar at the top...chrome://settings/autofill and also this chrome://settings/passwords

Note, won't work for other browsers
