    Tools, internet options, general tab at the bottom change the number of days to keep history.

    If you find that more than one day IS written in from brindle's suggestion above you may only have todays listing in the viewing pane.

    If so click the History tab on the iE toolbar then View and select By Date. That's where it is on W98 anyway :)

    The only way you're going to have more than today's date to choose from is to change the setting I mentioned from 0 to say 20. If the setting is 0 selecting view will still only give you a choice of today.

    brindle,

    yeah I realise that, but even if you have 20 days selected - then on the History preview pane you have

    View - By order visited today

    you will only see today's history despite having the other 19 days available

    At least I thought that to be the case, however I am far from an expert :)

    If you choose in the view option view by order visited today then yes thats what you'll get. If you want to see the history for past weeks then choose by date. By date will be empty If you don't specify 20 days etc. I think thats what the thread starter wanted.
    Are we on the same page?

    Hey... can I pipe in. Thanks....

    The question was probably correctly answered by Brindle.

    -however -

    AVATAR1s answer make perfect sense in that N12 could well have had 10 days set in tools yet ORDER VISITED TODAY selected on the bar. He would still only see todays history.

    His use of the word TODAY in the the question leads me to believe the former... but seems to me you're both right! ;)

    - Castleheart

    Happy almost birthday Brin. Don't tell me you still haven't found Maggie's Farm! You need to look in the mountains of NC! :D


    NORCO12 if you is a "she", please change the appropriate HEs/HISs to HER/HERs above. (If you had an avatar the gave a clue - I might not have guessed wrong.):D




    Come to think of it AVATAR1.....

    When you click the HISTORY button and the panel comes up on the left and you click "View " - WHAT IS SELECTED?

    -C

    "What is selected" is the question of the day. When we have the answer maybe we can go forward.
    When in windows explorer what options do you have?

    bu..bu..bu...but........ Which one is selected? :confused:

    LOOK AT THE ATTACHED IMAGE:


    The last selection is chosen and identified by the black circle. If your is the same then you will only see today - and you need to click DATE:

    So what is showing on yours?

    - C





    PS: And what version of Internet Explorer do you have?


    And a question for other folks in the know..... When inserting an image rather than attaching - what goes in the text bar after pushing IMG - the tree to the file or what? It says 'text to be formatted'? -C
