    No History in IE

    IE 9, Windows 10, history not saving.
    "Delete browsing history on exit" unchecked.

    By chance do you have any other tools like CC Cleaner installed that maybe sweeping. New AV or other utilities?

    This will sound goofy. Place the check mark back in box, click okay. Use the browser, close the browser, maybe even reboot. Come back in an uncheck box.

    You say IE 9. Is it truly IE 9 and did you downgrade for a specific purpose. If it really is IE9 I'm not sure that is even supported under Windows 10. It may run but could produce interesting results.

    Really? How?

    Microsoft said:
    Internet Explorer 9 is not compatible with your system.
    You are running Windows 10 64-bit. Although Internet Explorer 9 will not run on your system, you can download Internet Explorer 9 for other operating systems.

    Thanks. If you haven't made a lot of custom changes under the advance tab you could "Restore Advance Settings" and "reset" IE to see if behavior changes. Click on gear upper right of IE window, cliclk on Internet option, click on advance tab.

    Interesting. Resetting the browser should not have any impact on Window titles. Did history start to accumulate? You might try resetting again and doing a reboot.

    Started my IE. I do not have a windows title for window, nor do I have in chrome or edge. Just to be clear are we talking window titles or Tabs titles?

    I reset, rebooted and restarted, still no title bar text. No history.
    Tabs are ok, always were.

    All other windows are ok only Internet Explorer window has no text in title bar.

    Well as I said my IE, Edge and Chrome do not have titles. Word and excel, teamviewer do. This is on all my devices.

    If you go into Internet options and in the section "Browsing History", click on settings, click on History tab, how many days is it set for? I would have thought in a reset this would be set back to something like twenty. Maybe yours is at twenty.

    Do you have any kind of cleaner product or other "Like" utilities that you recently installed or updated. Norton Utilities, CC Cleaner etc.

    No history in IE

    I have 20 days set.

    I have three users, Don, Doncole2, Mac.
    I don't remember how I added them.

    Don has no history. However when I can change the Windows Title Bar font size (with the help of Winaero Tweaker).
    I know what your thinking but the history didn't work before I installed Winero Tweaker.
    When I reboot or change users and come back to don again the font size holds. I don't have to reset it anymore,

    With Doncole2 the history works but when I change the font size of the Windows Title Bars (even with the help of Winero Tweaker) the font size dosen't hold when I change user or reboot. I have to set it again.

    A simple solution to my problem would switch to the Doncole2 user. However I don't want to have reset the Windows Title Bar font size every time I reboot or switch user.

    Mac is pretty much the same as Doncole2.

    By the way the text showed IE for all three users before I Restored Advanced Settings. Now I dosen't show any of them.
    An other solution would be to use Microsoft Edge.
    That history working. But I simply don't like Microscoft Edge.
