    File explorer search history and program logs


    Dear all When I use Search in File Explorer, Windows stores / logs the search history. 1. Is there a place in Windows, where I can see timestamp / when I have made a search in file explorer? 2. Is there a place in Windows, where I can see when I have opened a program, for example Google Chrome? Thank you for replying Best regards

    :)

    File explorer search box history dispears after click Quick access

    Windows 10 version 20h2

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open file explorer

    2. type something in search box

    3. clear search box

    4. click search box again, you will see a drop down list showing recent search history

    5. click the Quick access which is located at the top of file explorer Navigation pane

    6. click search box again, it does not show the history list anymore

    I have to close file explorer and open it again to get the search history back.
