Searching and sorting IE8 History, Favorites

Hello,

I want to be able to search my IE8 History for key words that I may have seen in the URLs, but can no longer remember the exact URL, or sort the URLs/Pages by date (and time), so that I can find pages I have been to on a particular day and time. I would further like to do some searching and organizing with my Favorites, although this is not my primary need. I just need to be able to backtrack where I have been by time, or keyword, thru the IE8 History.

Is there a software program utility that would allow me to do this? Any direction toward such a program, especially a recommendation from someone who has used what they are recommending, is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for all your help!

~Antonio

THANK YOU, BILL2!!! Duh! Don't I feel stoopid??? Somehow, it's always seeing the things that are right in front of me that I miss. Ahhh, have a great Sunday!
