Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers available to the public. With its fast performance, beginner-friendly interface, and useful extensions, Chrome is a perfect option for web users who want to browse the web with minimal fuss.
Despite its widespread appeal, Google Chrome has a few quirks that can make it harder to navigate the web. For example, Google has a habit of removing previously saved bookmarks and history, which can make it difficult to navigate the web. However, this is an easy fix. In this tutorial, we will show you how to recover deleted history in Google Chrome.
What Happens When Google Deletes Your History?
If your Chrome history is deleted, then you will have difficulty navigating the web. Fortunately, Chrome keeps a record of your browsing history, which you can recover by following these steps:
Google Chrome stores your browsing history automatically, which can make your web browsing more efficient. When you visit a web page that you had previously visited, Google Chrome will display the previous webpage in the URL bar. You can also navigate to the site by clicking on the Back button in the browser.
Alternatively, if you have visited a web page before, then you can also right-click on the Chrome URL bar and select “History” as shown below.
How to Recover Deleted History in Google Chrome
The first thing to do is locate your deleted history. To do this, you need to open Google Chrome, then navigate to the URL bar and right-click it. This will bring up the context menu. From here, select “History” as shown below:
Step 1: Locate Your Deleted History
The first step is to find the web history that has been deleted. This is usually displayed below the URL bar, however, in some cases, it may be displayed in a different location. You can also search for your history using the search box at the top-right of the browser window.
After locating your deleted history, then you will need to copy it from the Chrome URL bar. The next step is to paste the URL in your browser’s address bar. Once the browser has loaded the page, then you can right-click on the address bar and select “Paste” to recover deleted history.
If you have followed the steps correctly, then the previous version of your web page will be displayed in the URL bar. Alternatively, you can also right-click on the Chrome address bar again and select “Paste as URL” to save the web page.
Step 2: Right-Click on the Chrome URL Bar and Select “History”
Once you have located your deleted history, then you will need to right-click it and select “Paste”. This will paste the URL in your browser’s history.
To view your history, you can use the Chrome menu in the top-right corner of the browser window, or you can just click the history icon displayed in the top-right corner of the Chrome home screen.
Step 3: Select the Previous Version of the Web Page
Once the web page is in your history, then you can view the web page that you were previously viewing. This will display the previous version of the web page.
Alternatively, if you want to view the web page that you were looking at before you were logged out, then you can just click on the URL displayed in the history of your browser.
Step 4: Check and Save the Page
Once the page has loaded, then you need to click on the checkbox next to the URL displayed in the URL bar. This will mark the page in your history and Chrome will then remember it.
Now all you need to do is click on the “Done” button at the bottom of the page to store the page. This will add the page to your history.
Once the page is stored in your history, then you can click on the “Forward” or “Back” buttons in the top-right corner of the browser window to go back to the web page that you were viewing before you deleted the page.
The most frustrating part of Google Chrome is when you accidentally delete your history. This is because then you cannot go back to, or view, the web pages that you had previously viewed. Luckily, you can recover deleted history in Google Chrome easily. All that is required is to locate your deleted history and then paste it back into your browser.
