View Full Version : Explorer Version 6

When I type WWW in the address bar in explorer I get the page cannot be displayed on every site I try and visit. However when I put the http:// before it there is no problem.

I've always just put WWW in before and it had worked fine. Is there some silly setting that I've missed?

are you typing it in capitals? If so, try lower case

Using Regedit, have a look at this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\URL

The correct settings should be as follows:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\URL\DefaultPrefix]
Default ="http://"


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\URL\Prefixes]
