Default How to disable internet searching from file browsers addressbar

Hello All,

Some time ago I noticed that entering a non-existing path or filenamename
into the address bar of explorer.exe would cause it to go out on the
internet to see if it could be resolved there, eventually replacing the pane
normally showing the files with a web-browser pane.

I *thought* I had disabled it (IE, tools, internet options, advanced, do not
search from the addressbar), but it turns that didn't quite work.

How do I disable this feature permanently ?

Regards,
Rudy Wieser

Hello Good Guy

Alas, no such setting is available here (XPsp3). :-\ (some of those
settings in your picture match with what I'm seeing, others do not)

I did however find a setting there named "search from the addresbar" -
"When searching", which I, long ago,did set to "Do not search from the
addressbar".

Nevertheless, it still goes to, for example, google.com when that is entered
in the addressbar. Other words (like "Foobar") triggers an attempt to find
it as if its a website (displayed in the infobar on the bottom of the
filebrowser window "finding site: Foobar").

I have not been able to find any other setting pertaining to the addressbar.

Regards,
Rudy Wieser
