    Where is History folder?

    In Window's XP, there is a history folder that records all activities of the
    PC, it is at c:\user\local \local settings\history. Does anyone know where to
    find this folder in Vista?

    c:\users\you_username \appdata\local\microsoft\windows\history

    If you don't see it, make sure that Show Hidden files and folders is checked
    (Organize > Search and Folder Options > View

    With IE 7.0 opened go up to Tools.
    To Internet Options.
    Click the Settings button under Browsing History.
    Under Current Folder it shows you where they are.

    The only other recommendation then is to do it from within Internet Explorer

    > Tools > Options > General (tab) > under 'Browsing History' > Settings

    Jim

    Click Start and type shell:history In the results click the History
    folder.
    The actual path to this folder is:
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History

    AppData is a hidden folder, so you will need to make sure that folders are
    not hidden. To do this, open Windows Explorer and click Organize/Folder and
    Search Options. Click the View Tab and select the 'Show hidden files and
    folders' option.
