Chapter 3. Managing Files and Folders > Locating Files Using the History List

Locating Files Using the History List

Windows keeps a list of your most recently used files, folders, and network computers in the History folder. Instead of navigating through a long list of folders to open a recently used file, you can use the History list to find it quickly. The History list works exactly like the one in a web browser. You can view the History Explorer bar in several ways: by date, by site, by most visited, and by order visited today.

Find a File from the History List

Open any folder.

Click the View menu, point to Explorer Bar, and then click History.

TIMESAVER Press Ctrl+H to open the History list.

In the History list, click the View button, and then click the view you want.

To open a file, click the file name.

When you're done, click the Close button.
