Dear all

When I use Search in File Explorer, Windows stores / logs the search history.

1. Is there a place in Windows, where I can see timestamp / when I have made a search in file explorer?

2. Is there a place in Windows, where I can see when I have opened a program, for example Google Chrome?

Thank you for replying

Best regards

"File auditing" is likely the functionality that you require.

Start here:

Then research (google) accordingly as applicable to your requirements.

If you are an IT admin person or developer, then Powershell might address your requirements.

Commercial products are also available. Just as a reference/starting point (not recommending or endorsing any products):
