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

followed the path through all that was recommended but there is no
History folder under Microsoft !!!

The only other recommendation then is to do it from within Internet Explorer
> Tools > Options > General (tab) > under 'Browsing History' > Settings

Click Start and type shell:history In the results click the History
The actual path to this folder is:

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.

I found it through the IE7 Tools option....TX for your help !!

Go to---->


For AppData Folder you should have your hidden folders check box on...
for that go to Windows Explorer(Computer)----> Organize---->Folders and
Search Options---->View----> then make sure that the Show hidden Files
and Folders is active so you can see all the hidden folders.

Then youŽll be able to see the AppData folder...
