Hi Telse

Is it logging on to an account on the web? If so you can try & clear autofill. Which browser are you using?

Thank you for your help.I am using Firefox.I am fairly new to the techworld and still find things confusing.I tried finding disable autofilland thought I had done so. Not.With a liitle more patience and more reading, I discovered that the up and down arrows enable autofill.SoI tried this-along with delete,and low and behold-gone.Amazing what a little patience will do.Thanks again for your help.I'm not sure how tovote.This is my first time here.I pressed the arrow-up.???cheers Telse.

When you are typing in your user name and the incorrect one appears, you should be able to delete that name by simply highlighting it completely and hitting the DEL button. After this, it should no longer appear in the list of autofills.

Thank you for responding.I did try that.Everything seemed stuck.I have it working again.I discovered the up and down arrows on the keyboard enable autofill.Using these arrows and delete made the name disappear.Thank you Nauti.cheers Telse
