Tip & How-To about Google Chrome

Chrome Anonymous Window

Clicking on Control + Shift + N opens a "anonymous window".

The sites you will view in the anonymous window won't appear in your history and the cookies of these sites will be deleted once the window is closed.

Thought this is kind of cool.

view deleted history


If want to see what's been viewed on a computer or if you want to find a website that you visited, but can't quite remember the name of, you'll need to check your computer's history and cookies folders.

These are where the information about a computer user's Internet whereabouts are kept.
Some people say these folders contain the user's "footprints."

The footprints aren't hard to find. All it takes is a few mouse clicks and you're there.
Open your Web browser and click on the "Favorites, Feeds and History" tab. Internet Explorer's tab is indicated by a yellow star.


Click on the "History" tab. There should be a list of items arranged either by "Date," "Site," "Most Visited" or "Visited Today."

Click on each of these items to see what's been viewed on the computer.


If the history has been deleted, click on "Tools" and a drop-down menu will appear.
Click on "Internet Options."

On the "Internet Options" screen, click on "Settings" under "Browsing history."


Click on "View files" to display the cookies on the computer.

Cookies are pieces of information from websites that a computer saves to make loading the information faster. You can click on these items to see what they are.

A website shown up and I closed it and I did not puase the sound


go into your browser history and you should be able to find it. TO do this in FireFox (mozilla), you will see the word "history" at the top of your browser, click on it and go down and click on "recently closed tabs". This should show you the website url and link so you can open it back up.
If on Internet Explorer, click VIEW and then click "Explorer Bar" and then "history" and the history should appear on the left side of your browser. Look for the site url here or try all of the urls you don't recognize (click and load them)
(you can tell which browser you are using by clicking on the HELP menu at the top of the browser then click ABOUT XXXX browser) and it will tell you which one). You can also try hitting the CTRL - SHIFT - H keys all at the same time.
