Turn off automatic search in address bar

When I type in a url Brave automatically searches rather than going to the url, how do I change that?

Thank you for reaching out to us.
The browser should only be searching if you’re not entering an exact site address or if the format is off. For example:

  • If you type in brave.com into the address bar, you should then be taken to the website.
  • If you type in brave .com, the browser will search for the terms.

Can you confirm that you’re using the correct address/formatting? Additionally, if you are, does this happen for any/all websites you try?
