The History tool in Vivaldi is somewhat different than in a typical browser – instead, Vivaldi’s History is a detailed overview backed by statistics and presented in a fresh, visual way. It was built to give users a powerful and useful tool to explore their browsing patterns and to make finding previously visited sites easier than ever.
The History page can be accessed in a number of ways within the Vivaldi interface:
- From the top bar of the Start Page (vivaldi://startpage);
- Use Keyboard Shortcuts (Ctrl H / ⌘ Y);
- Enter vivaldi://history in the Address Field;
- Select History from the Tools menu;
- Middle-click on the History Panel button;
- Opening the History Panel in Vivaldi’s Side Panel (below Bookmarks, Downloads and Notes).
