Chapter 5. Exploring the Internet > Viewing and Maintaining a History List

Viewing and Maintaining a History List

Sometimes you run across a great web site and simply forget to add it to your Favorites list. With Internet Explorer there's no need to try to remember all the sites you visit. The History feature keeps track of where you've been by date, site, most visited, or order visited today. To view the History list, click the History button on the toolbar, and then click a day or week in the Explorer Bar to expand the list of web sites visited. Because the History list can grow to occupy a large amount of space on your hard drive, it's important to control the length of time you retain web sites in the list. Internet Explorer deletes the History list periodically, based on the settings you specify. You can also delete individual listings in the History folder as needed.

View a Web Site from the History List

Click the History button on the Standard toolbar.

Click a week or day to expand or compress the list of web sites visited.

Click the folder for the web site you want to view, and then click a page within the web site.

When you're done, click the Close button.
