When you click on a history node in the folder tree view, the file list view will automatically switch to history mode. When in history mode, the file list view will scan all of the recently accessed log files on the selected computer. For each log file LogViewPlus will extract the directory which is then displayed in the recent directories category. Log files will be displayed in the recent files category. The location column is used to show the full path to the target log file or directory.
When managing your local history LogViewPlus can remember up to 20 files for each computer you access. In addition to this LogViewPlus keeps a global history of the 20 most recently accessed files across all computers. You can configure the number of recent history items stored in the recent history settings.
The global history will be displayed in the quick access history node. History for each computer will be displayed in the specific computer's history node.
