Internet Explorer 7 History
Are you a new Internet Explorer 7 user? Or, perhaps you’ve been using it for awhile now. Either way, are you a little curious as to where the History feature went? I know I had that problem when I first started using IE 7. But then one day, I found it and I just knew I had to share my secret with all of you. So, if you’ve been searching for your IE 7 history for some time now, let’s go find it together!
First of all, it’s very normal to want to view your Web browser’s history. I mean, maybe you want to have a look at a family member’s Internet usage. Or, perhaps you forgot the name of a great Web site you happened upon a couple weeks ago and you want to find it again. Or, maybe you just want to see how many Web sites you visit in a day. No matter what your reasons, it’s a good idea to look at your browser history every now and then.
As you know, the History button has been removed from the Internet Explorer 7 toolbar. Because of that, it’s now much easier to cover your tracks (such as deleting your browsing history), but looking back has become a lot harder. That is, unless you know the shortcut! First, here’s the long version:
1.) In the top left hand corner, there’s a small star icon. Go ahead and click on that.
2.) In the menu that pops up, click on the History drop down arrow and then choose By Date.
3.) There’s your history! Go ahead, look it over and find what you need.
But of course, that method is a little tedious and you may not want to do all of that every time.
So, what’s the simple solution, you ask? Well, the answer is Ctrl + H.
Yes, it’s that easy! Ctrl + H will bring up your History bar right away. Give it a try for yourself today!
