Where is the Internet history stored on my computer?

Answer

Your Internet history, or browser history, is stored in your browser's temporary cache file on your computer's hard drive. When a page is viewed, the URL is stored in the browser history along with the date it was last opened.

Browser settings determine how long these records will be stored in your computer. Each browser is set up slightly differently, but all Internet browsers have the same major features, including history settings. A typical Web browser will keep URLs for about two weeks as a default setting. Users can alter browser history settings to keep URLs for only a few days or for several months. Each browser is set up slightly differently, but all allow users to clear the history entirely or to delete addresses individually, by date or by website. Some browsers also allow users to delete all addresses viewed within a set time frame, such as the past hour.
