Have you ever searched for something on your phone or computer and then completely forgotten what it was? It can be frustrating when you’re trying to find something again but can’t remember what you searched for. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to see your recent searches and find that last thing you searched for.
Step 1: Open the Chrome App
The first step is to open the Chrome app on your device. This is usually a blue icon with a white “e” on it.
Step 2: Go to MyActivity.Google.com
Once Chrome is open, type “myactivity.google.com” into the address bar or search box without quotes. Press enter or go button. This will take you to a website where you can view your recent activity, including your searches.
Step 3: Search Your Activity
On the website, scroll down the page until you find the box labeled “Search your activity.” From here, you can conduct a search by typing in a keyword or phrase. You can also apply filters to narrow down the results.
What You’ll See
When you conduct a search or apply filters, you’ll be able to see a list of all your recent searches. You can also see the date and time of the search, as well as the device or browser you used.
View Your Browsing History
In addition to seeing your recent searches, you can also view your entire browsing history. Just scroll down the page and you’ll see a list of all the websites you’ve visited. You can also use the filters to narrow down the results.
Delete Your Search
If you don’t want to keep a certain search or browsing history, you can delete it by clicking on the three dots on the right side of each activity. You can also delete all your activity or activity of a specific time range by clicking on the three dots on the top right corner.
Real Life Example
For example, let’s say you can’t remember what you searched for on Google last night. Here’s what you would do:
- Open the Chrome app
- Go to myactivity.google.com
- Scroll down to the “Search your activity” box
- Use the filters to narrow down the results to last night
In conclusion, it’s easy to find the last thing you searched for, even if you can’t remember what it was. By using the MyActivity website, you can view your recent activity, including your searches, and even filter the results to find exactly what you’re looking for. So the next time you can’t remember what you searched for, just follow these steps and you’ll be able to find it in no time.
