You can check out a lot of Web sites during a good Web surfing
session. That's really the essence of Web surfing - to go from one
Web site to another, not knowing where you'll end up next. It's
great to move along so quickly, but what happens when you want to
go back to look at something in particular? Fortunately, you can
use IE5's History list to go back to any one of the sites you've
seen - and it keeps track of all the sites you've viewed in the
last few days, hours, or minutes.
open the History list:
1) Click the History button on the toolbar. The History
window appears to the left of the main IE5 window, complete with
all your history links.
