IE history folder in windows 7

Hi,

I am trying to locate history folder for IE in Windows 7.  I searched on the web, here is the location
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
But there is no "Temporary Internet Files" folder, any ideas?  thx

Go to Tools->Internet options, then click on "Settings" under "Browsing history", in the General tab.
You'll see there the current location of "Temporary Internet Files".

If you go in the specified location and still can't see it, then you need to check "Show hidden" and uncheck "Hide protected" in the folder options.

HTH,
Dan

To be clear, "username" in the location you posted is the name of the user, such as

C:\Users\mcrmg\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

or

C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

or

C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

Are you saying there is no folder called

Temporary Internet Files

that is under, for example,

C:\Users\mcrmg\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\

If so, what folders are under

C:\Users\mcrmg\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\

Regards, Joe
