Hello Foobartwo,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Take a look in internet options. On the general tab click on browsing history settings and make sure you have some number of days for IE to remember last visted sites (at the bottom). Also if you have delete browsing history on exit checked click on the delete button (it won't delete anything yet) and make sure history is unchecked.

Hope this helps. Please keep us posted.

Have you set History in IE to clean every time you close it?

Hi,

My IE is disabled in Windows 7 and I use Google Chrome. The auto fill / auto complete is enabled in Chrome. Yet I do not see the history in Windows Explorer. Plz help.

Thx

From the attached screenshot, I don't think the OP is actually talking about Internet Explorer but the files and folders dropdown menu.

I have had a look at the folder options and can't seem to find what will enable that for you

Maybe another member can offer a solution if you can clarify you are NOT talking about internet explorer?

Actually, another thread just gave me an idea! Restore your defaults in your folder options menus (control panel>folder options). Be sure to restore defaults on all three tabs.

If it works, credit must go to Venths in this thread Issue with explorer and office

Yes.. I was referring to Windows Explorer history and not Internet Explorer history. I'll check out the option of restoring folder options to default settings.

Have you ever typed a path in the address bar? If not you have no history to display.

Bingo Logicearth! I too have an empty Explorer history pull down and was wondering about this. So my thanks to Foobartwo for posting his inquiry. I thought just selecting them with my mouse on the left created history. As soon as I typed a few paths into the address bar, I can "see" some history! Thanks.
