Internet for Beginners/internet history


How do i find the internet history after it has been deleted ? My comp. Automaticly deletes at start up and I cant remeber a web add. I was on. Thank you..

That's a good question Darrell - most modern browsers do a really good job of wiping out our browsing history if that's how we set it up.

My first inclination would be to check your browser cookies.  Browsers differ, so you may need to consult the "help" for your browser to determine how you can browse recent cookies.

I've also found an article which may help - check it out:

I hope this helps - Ken

If you are new to the Internet you may be anxious to give it the gas; or terrified to take your foot from the brake! Either way, with over 20 years on what is now called the information highway, I can steer you in the right direction. Are you ready? Let's hit the road!


I have over 20 years of practical experience with web-related issues, and some military computer training. I've worked for a computer manufacturer, and own a small technology company specializing in web-design, hosting, and internet media production. I am the webmaster of several sites, and e-newsletter editor for Rotary District 6760 which is comprised of 65 clubs throughout middle Tennessee.

I'd like to say a diploma from a revered educational facility hangs on my wall, and perhaps someday it will. In reality, everything I know has been self-taught, much of it done so in the hallowed halls of that venerable institution called "The School of Hard Knocks".
