How can I do a print out of my Internet Explorer History file showing all the properties of each site address ie
the description, date and time visited..???
I tried various combinations for the print screen key but the best I could get was the actual explorer page?
Thanks in anticipation, H.

Heph,
  History lives in C:\WINDOWS\HISTORY\INDEX.DAT
  Going into C:\WINDOWS\HISTORY opens up a special kind of 'folder' where you can view individual details of the sites visited, but you can't print them all out all at once.
  Same goes for Temporary Internet Files - another special kind of folder...
  However, you can go into View > Options > Temporary Internet Files, View Files and see a lot more than via a history window.
  There's a free program out there - 'About My Cache' -

http://www.download.com/PC/Result/TitleDetail/0,4,0-54455,1000.html?st.dl.results.list.tdtl

  which may give you more details and a print option - I haven't tried it, but it should point you in the right direction.

try dragging across the text you want to copy and press the right mouse button, then select copy.
now start up something like notepad and tap the right mousebutton on the blank and select paste....

In windows explorer:
go to your windows directory then your history directory.
go to the day you want and in that window click on the right mouse button choose details
select everything in that window and from the edit menu at the top of explorer choose copy start up notepad.
go edit, paste,
print.
good luck

Everything I said in my previous answer was correct except for one mistake.. you do the
browsing from inside internet explorer not that file explorer thingy that comes with windows.
