If your computer is slow and you search by entering both a Last Name and a First Name, this list can take several moments to appear. If this is the case you can: 1) Do not enter the first name when searching, 2) Press <Page Down> after entering the name (see Step D below), 3) choose to show fewer than eight names in the pick list. See Store Information Defaults for this option.
