I utilize the browser history much more than favorites. It's really handy since you can type a few characters in the location bar and it'll pull up matching URLs. What's annoying for me is when I make a typo because often I'll have a bad history item that comes before the one I want. IE doesn't give you any way to selectively delete history items. I don't want to delete everything.
I've searched a few times for tools, but everything I found would delete everything. Not what I wanted. Today, I stumbled across this gem:
(IE History View)
It's a very small standalone utility that pulls up a list of your history, lets you search for matches, delete items, export, etc. I was able to delete the typos and leave everything else. Very handy!
I thought I would share since I'm sure others use IE's history in similar ways and have probably run across similar problems.
UPDATE: I just realized that this is the same company that wrote IE PassView
, which is really handy for moving your saved passwords to another computer
. It looks like they have about 100 other programs
, many password and network
related. Definitely worth a bookmark.
