    One thought on “How to Disable Autofill Email Id Suggestions in Windows 10 Mail App

    1. Thank you for the very useful and well explained article. However, 2 questions:

      1. I wonder why I don’t have the + to compose and all the other functions you show in your Startup, except I have the list of the programs etc. I also like the nice, neat way your page looks in general. Is there a way for me to have it look more like yours?

      2. I like the auto-complete of email addresses and I had it a long time ago without my having to go fetch it in settings, etc. It just appeared to my delight, but a few days ago I lost everything to a virus and now I’d like to get this auto-complete feature and don’t know how. Did you ever write (or will you ever write) about getting it? If so, please let me know?

      Thanks ever so much! 🙂 Adela
