Is there a way I can remotely export the IE 11 and or Chrome history from any given PC to a CSV file? This would be on windows 10 and windows 7

Not unless you've got remote access to that PC which you haven't specified as having.

I learned a lot about automating IE 11 while checking into this question, but I didn't find any way to do it.

I suspect it could be done with InetCpl.cpl, but it's not in any of the documented interfaces.

I was hoping to use some type of script, maybe connect with PSEXEC or use PSexec or Powershell.

I got caught up in trying to find a native way to do it, but I couldn't find a native way to read the database file.

Today I found a free utility to do what you want. I've used nirsoft a lot over the years, especially their nk2 utility, so I expect this will be of high quality: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/browsing_history_view.html

Well it's a start.  Now I just have to figure out how I can use this on a remote machine.

@Don - Why do you even mention that? The file is an ESE database, not a text file.

As I wrote before, PowerShell doesn't have a way to natively read the database file. That applies both locally and remotely.

I used that tool and created a bat file that reads and exports the information to a CSV file. Good find thanks.
