Change the Style Property from csDropDown to csDropDownList (in object inspector)

Easy as that !

Value                    Meaning

csDropDown      Creates a drop-down list with an edit box for manually entered text. All
                            items are strings of the same height.
csSimple                    Creates an edit box with a fixed list (list box) underneath. The length of
                            the list is determined by the Height of the combo box.
csDropDownList      Creates a drop-down list with no edit box; the user cannot enter text                            
                            manually. All items are strings of the same height.
csOwnerDrawFixedCreates an owner-draw drop-down list with an edit box for manually
                             entered text. Each item in the list is the height specified by the            
                             ItemHeight property.

csOwnerDrawVariable      Creates an owner-draw drop-down list with an edit box for manually entered text. List items can have varying heights.
