    Method to save and view complete file history in File Explorer?

    Hi all,

    I want to be able to view the files that I've accessed in File Explorer so that I can review (and preferably search through) them at any time. Essentially what I want is the "Recent items" menu that comes up on the File Explorer homepage, but the version that doesn't just stop with the last 20 items I've accessed. (It would be even more ideal if the list of files would include those that I've created/modified/saved from other programs, but I'm not sure that File Explorer itself would be able to keep track of files that I didn't actually open through FileExplorer).

    Is there any way to do this? I have searched through old posts, but haven't found anything.

    Thanks for your help!

    Nirsoft has a couple of freeware tools that might help get some of what you want RecentFilesView and OpenSaveFilesView
