Maintenance Plan history SQL Server 2008

I have 4 maintenance plans for sql server 2008.   2 of them are backup jobs which I can obviously tell if they ran to see if I have back up files.  but the other 2 are for tasks like shrinking log files or reindexing db's.

where can I tell if they ran?

Right-click on job name and check the job history. You can also verify it in the SQL Server logs or Windows Event Log.

Under Maintenance Plans, right click on the plan and click on View History.  You will see the history log.

You should not be routinely "shrinking log files".  You need to review those logs, get them properly sized, and leave them alone!
