    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application.
    Mine is located here. We can see the Google Chrome icon, which is a circle made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Chrome". Our Google Chrome application may be in different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to find it. Once we've done that, press down on it, to enter the application.

    We want the option that says, "Search and URL suggestions:
    Use a prediction service to show related queries and popular websites as you type in the address bar." This option is currently activated. We can tell that because this box is blue with a white check inside of it. This means that when we are typing in the search bar in Google, it will give us suggestions of popular websites, or show similar words to see if we want to use them.
