How to View Your Browsing History

Easily find websites that you previously visited

Sometimes you need to find a site you visited but didn’t save as a favorite. To do that, you can review your browsing history.

  1. Click the Favorites Center button and then click History to display the History pane.
  2. Click the down arrow on the History button and select a sort method:

    By Date: Sort favorites by date visited.
    By Site: Sort alphabetically by site name.
    By Most Visited: Sort with the sites visited most on top and those visited least at the bottom of the list.
    By Order Visited Today: Sort by the order in which you visited sites today.
  3. In the History pane, click the link to the site you want to visit. It takes you to the site, and the History pane closes.
