Notes
When you search from the Address bar, Internet Explorer can automatically display the webpage that most likely matches what you are searching for and list other likely sites as well. To search in this way, type common names or words in the Address bar, and then click the Go button .
No matter which option you choose, you can still search for websites by typing search terms in the search box on the toolbar.
