By default, when you enter a word or group of words into the Google search bar, a list of suggestions or words matching your content is displayed. This is designed to help users find what they are looking for more quickly by cutting down on typing time and allowing the user to simply click the suggestion if it matches. However, it's not perfect and can be bothersome. You can easily disable this search setting.

Open your web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox).

Go to Google's website.

Click the "Settings" link at the top right. Select "Search Settings."

Scroll down until you see "Query Suggestions."

Select the "Do not provide query suggestions in the search box" option. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Preferences."
