Finding last open file

Hi so i've got this problem. I need to find when a file was last opened and runned. I need to clear that history so that no one knows that i've been playing games when i shouldn't (don't say anything about just admit it and tell your parents). My cousin who found a way to bust me playing a game told my parents. All i can remember is that he typed ".(letter)" in like my data d drive (partitioned hard drive). This came up with a log showing what exe that was open and when it was last open. Please help me find this. Also dont know if this is important but asian parents. also the technique he use was on 7 forums before but i cant find it

you will probably struggle to get any help with your issue.
many of us are parents here and will understand your parents wishes .
if you should be studying or have been grounded from playing games then you need to respect your parents wishes and get along.
you will probably find that they will allow you time for games and time for study.
when you can be seen to follow their rules.
after all i presume they pay for the computer and games.
when you are older you will be able to manage your time better but for now its your parents who have that responsibility.

now this is where you tell us you are age 45
