In Outlook 2010, as soon as you start typing   in the  “To”, “Cc” and “Bcc” fields, a special autocomplete feature will automatically show you, in a kind of “drop-down menu”, a list of choices that match the name or the email you are writing. Without any doubt, one could think that such a feature is a real blessing as it lets you save a considerable amount of time, above all if you don’t remember the contact you want to send the email to. However, some users might find such a feature quite annoying or disrespectful of your privacy, above all in all those cases where autocomplete starts showing embarassing names and emails in front of your friends and co-workers! Let’s see how to turn it off in a couple of steps.

  1. Open Outlook 2010.
  2. Click the File tab located on the upper toolbar.
  3. From its drop-down menu, click the Options link.
  4. A new window labeled Outlook option will pop on the screen.
  5. On the left pane, click the mail option.
  6. On the right pane, untick  Use Auto-Complete List to suggest names when typing in the To, Cc, and Bcc lines checkbox.
  7. Click OK to confirm.
