Keep Track of the Sites You Visit Every Day With This Browser Extension for Windows 10
Chrome, Firefox: When Microsoft introduced their new Timeline feature in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update , I was a little overwhelmed to find this feature that you can use to see what you were up to on any given day. Not very useful if you are not using the Edge browser. Funnily enough remembering which Windows apps I used on a given day, it’s also great to get an idea of what sites I browsed that day, which was previously impossible for the vast majority of Windows users. Chrome or Firefox.
However, everything has changed. Download the free Windows Timeline Support extension for Chrome or Firefox and you can now view your browsing history in the Windows Timeline. (To access the Timeline, press Windows + Tab on your keyboard or click the Task View button on the taskbar.)
After installing the extension, remember to click its icon next to your browser address bar and sign in to your Microsoft account. If you don’t, your sites won’t be submitted to Windows Timeline. You will also miss out on other fun extension features like sending any open web page to another Windows computer that you own.
The extension even connects directly to the Microsoft Activity History Dashboard for your Microsoft account, so you can see some of the data tracked by Microsoft. Of course, if you ever decide that you no longer want an extension to have access to your account, you can always turn off its permissions here .
