Stumped ..
How do I search Internet Explorer History ? I have over 20 weeks of browsing history, and I know I visitied a site within that time, but stuffed if I am going thru every bit of history, one by one, looking for that particular website.

Firefox has a nice searchable history, why the heck doesn't IE ?

Why don't I use FF ? Corporate policy, K ?

Are you on IE9?  If so, go to "history" tab, and the drop down box at the top gives you, along with the option of ordering by various criteria, the option to "search history" :-)

I think it does....

In IE9, in history in the option box with "view by date" etc, the bottom option is "Search history"

for other versions YMMV

IE8 has it too, just use the "View By..." drop-down box. Last option is search.

Thanks guys - never underestimate the craziness of an end user. In my case, I had disabled Windows Search, so hence the search function did not appear.

Duh ..
