Hey folks I have a pinch of a problem and I'm looking for "proof" so to speak. I have windows 10 and use google chrome as my browser. I have a few pages in my history from about a month ago that are no longer "active" so to speak. I'm guessing I might need to see these offline if possible? Its a car dealer ad, 1 on there website and 1 on craigslist. Is there anyway I can view these as they were almost a month ago? My history goes back that far. Thanks, I can take apart a computer, but I'm not any good on the keyboard side.

History will not get you the page from a month ago as it only links to that page. If the page is still in Chrome's cache you can use the cache viewer below and hope the page you are looking for is still in Chrome's cache.

Edit: This is an old page and I can't say it will work for you using the latest Chrome version but give it a try.

 

You may have luck using this program if the above does not work.

You might find it through the web-site 'Wayback machine'. Google it, it's an archive of web-sites and changes to them.

I will "third" the suggestion of using the "Wayback Machine," which is at the address offered by dallae1.

 

While it is possible that you may have a cached copy from when you last viewed something, there is no guarantee of that.  If it's not available via Wayback Machine, and you don't have a cached copy, then you're out of luck.

 

When I even suspect I may want the content of a given webpage "as it was" at a later time I generally print it to PDF.   That way you know you have a "frozen in time" copy from the date you printed it.
