  1. Navigate to System Administration > Configuration > 'Search Selectors'
  2. Locate the 'Search Selector' you would like to update
  3. At the bottom of the selector, there is code that can be updated to make the change
  4. Change the dropDownEnabled=false to dropDownEnabled=true


Please notice that enabling this configuration may affect the performance, if you have a huge number of entity to which you have dropDownEnabled=true the system will take longer to load pages related to this entity creation or edit.

Don't Make this change if you have large number of Users/Items, it will directly impact the performance.
