So we're covering DOS command line commands and I found out something interesting. Even if someone has cleared their browsing history, you can do the following to retrieve it:
- Open the Command Prompt, either via the easy way of Windows Key + R, type in cmd, and press enter or by going to Start->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt
- type the following (no quotes): "ipconfig /displaydns > dnslog.txt"
- Note the directory that you're in, navigate to it in windows, and open the .txt file you created.
One thing to note is that it doesn't exactly list the websites visited, it lists any websites your computer had to reference. If there's an ad on a website that links to www.annoyingads.com, it shows up, as do actual website visits.
SORRY FELLOW GUYS I know you like your "clear browsing history" button.
