How to Print Browsing History in Internet Explorer

By Jacqui Lane

The browser history in Internet Explorer can tell you a lot about someone’s online habits. It contains a record of the websites that a user has visited as well as the date and time of the visit. If you’re tracking the Internet usage of an employee or child, you may want to print this history for later reference. Internet Explorer doesn’t include an option to print the history, but you can create a printable view using a free application.

Things You'll Need

  • WinZip or similar file unzipping utility

Step 1

Visit the IE HistoryView website (see Resources below for link). Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Download IEHistoryView."

Step 2

Double-click "" and extract the contents to a folder on your desktop.

Step 3

Open the IE HistoryView folder. Double-click "iehv.exe" to launch the application.

Step 4

Click the "Save" icon in the toolbar at the top of the program. This icon looks like a floppy disk and is the fourth icon from the left. Name the file and click "Save" again. The browser history will be exported to an easy-to-read text file.

Open the text file you just created. Press "Ctrl" and "P" to open the "Print" dialog box. Click "Print" to print a copy of the Internet Explorer browser history.
