How to check internet history on a PC from yesterday
Most Internet browsers offer a history feature to easily locate sites you've visited in the past. (Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images News/Getty Images)

Your Internet browser tries to make your life easier by saving your most recently viewed websites. If you found an interesting site yesterday, but can't remember where or how you found it, you can use your browser's history feature which you can sort by date to simplify locating yesterday's sites. Some browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, list such sites in their own category, appropriately named "Yesterday."
