hi all, greetings, new using Vista.
Just wondering for IE7 using Vista, I cant find some of the browsing history files in my temp internet files' folder which can be found typically when i used XP.
Is it operating systems' difference or my IE settings?
Thanks all in advance...

To find and view Temporary Internet Files on Vista:
Click the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
The Internet Options dialog window will appear.
OPen the "General" tab.
In the "Browsing history" area, click the "Settings..." button.
In the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" window, click the "View Files..." button. The new window displays all of the Temporary Internet Files stored on the computer and their location on the local hard drive. The window also displays the URL each temporary file came from.


Location of Temporary Internet Files folder on Vista:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

You may have to change the folder view settings (control panel > folder options) to show all files, and disable hide protected operating system files to see all of them... just be sure to change these back when you're done
