Pages I Previously Viewed Online

Specs: Widows XP, ?

One of my internet explorer windows shut down on me unexpectedly. It contained an order number that I didn't get a chance to write down, and the retailer has not sent my confirmation email yet. Is there anyway I can reaccess that page through my history or something?

Your best bet is if you first go to offline mode.

(If using Internet Explorer 7, click Tools, then menu bar.) Click the File menu, then check "Work Offline" Then you can check your history (Ctrl+Shift+H)

Ctrl+Shift+H to check history didn't work. What do I do now?

I got my email and have confirmed my order :) So what I have learned through this is that you cannot reaccess pages previously visited through history. Right? I suppose my order page was encrypted as well.

"Is there anyway I can reaccess that page through my history or something?"

If you wipe the address in the Address line,
and type the first few letters of the address where you were - e.g. www.comput for a url on this site, just below the Address bar a list will pop up of the most recent url's that start with the same as you typed - if you're lucky the url you just visited will be at the top or near the top of the list, and you can choose it - however that may not work for the url of a secure web page.

If you are using IE 6 then just click on the little down arrow beside the back button on the top. This will give you your history for the day - control H will give you your history as a sidebar.

Have a look in your Temporary Internet Files folder in your user settings - the page might be cached there. Might not work if you were viewing a dynamic page, where part of the page is read from a database.

Worth a try though.
