Where is History folder?

L
#1
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

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.
