My browser history is not working on my Windows 7 Home . 64bit.I had IE9 installed on my computer(Laptop) about 3-4 weeks ago. But now, my browser history window has stopped tracking my browsing.
Can someone suggest help?

Hello Dr who, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check using step 4A in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to make sure that you have both the Address bar and Browsing history box checked.

Internet Explorer AutoComplete - Turn On or Off



Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ok, next check these items.
  • Delete browsing history on exit turned off
  • If you have a program like CCleaner installed, then make sure it's set to not delete your browsing history.
  • Open Internet Options > General Tab > Browsing History > Settings, and make sure that your disk space usage is set to at least 250 MB (default).

It seems that the only browser history that is being remembered by my Browser History window is with My computer activity. IE, if I pull up a picture from my Pictures file, It is logged into the browser History window.

Hmm, ok. Just to be certain that we are on the same page, could you post a screenshot of where it's no longer showing your browsing history at?

Here is what I see. -halloween-006.jpg

Like I say, the browser window is not recording any browsing activity from me surfing the web. It used to a couple days ago.

I have this same problem,,, clear your cache and it willl again start saving your browsing history,, try adjusting disk space (where red arrow is in below image) use to save history for a longer amount of time, try like 400mb maybe.

Do you happen to have Internet Explorer in InPrivate Browsing mode? If you do, it will have a blue InPrivate box to the left of the address bar, and will not record your browsing history while in InPrivate Browsing mode.
Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing - Turn On

If not, then you might see if completely resetting IE9 may help.
Internet Explorer - Reset

Does Microsoft store URL history regardless of browser or privacy?
I read a long time ago that Windows XP saves all URLs that you visit regardless of the browser you were using or whether you were in private or incognito mode. Is this true for Windows 7?
