Hi,Since my last PC upgrade, the addresses that I type in to the address bar vanish after a few days. How can I stop this happening? I prefer to keep them in the mix for as long as possible. I have searched the forum for an answer. thanks black

Assuming you are using IE go to Tools/ Internet Options
Under the General Tab you will see History and Days to keep pages in history.

It already says to keep history pages for 20 days. When I start typing an address, after a letter or two, a list of similar addresses comes up, although they don't show up when I press the down arrow of the address bar.

You are referring to autocomplete then.
In IE go to Tools/Internet Options
Click on the Content Tab and then AutoComplete and and check the settings.

You are not running another application that clears internet history for you? Some security/privacy programs offer this.
