    Hi guys,

    Can anyone tell me how you can get to view your internet history in the modern interface (or whatever it's called) version of IE? I know how to do it in the traditional desktop version but try as I might I just can't find it, all it seems to display is a handful of recently visited sites. I'm trying to locate a site I visited a while ago which I can't remember the address for. (senility has set in it seems)

    Thanks in advance

    Ste

    I don't think you can...which is odd.

    I haven't found a way. The 'modern' version still needs a lot of work.

    Lot of things you can't do with the " Modern " version of IE.

    Can't minimize it.
    Can't organize your favorites on the bar( have to do it in desktop version an it synchs ).
    Can't snap it to one of the sides of the monitor.

    And the list goes on.

    Hmm thanks everyone. Odd isn't it? I found where you delete your history, which kind of makes it even stranger! Not that I need to delete it, I'd like to view it but never mind...
