Returning to Sites Through History

Internet Explorer hides the History list as a tab within the Favorites Center. You can get there by clicking Favorites and then clicking the History tab . Or, more simply, press Ctrl + H. (To display and pin the History list, press Ctrl+Shift+H.)

As Figure 6-5 shows, you can sort the History list in various ways . More important, perhaps, the History list includes a search command. If you've been somewhere important in recent days but you can't possibly remember when or what the site was called, searching history might solve your problem. The search tool won't find content buried on a page, but it might find page titles . For example, suppose that airport limousine service you once perused has a home page, a page called Rates, and another called Reservations. You don't remember the name of the company or which day you were pondering a limo ride, but you do remember you went to the Reservations page. Search your history for Reservations, and you'll find what you need.
