View tab history

Restriction. The tab history contains the last 12 pages that were open. If you don't find the page you are looking for on the list, go to your entire history. The entire history contains sites that you visited in the last 90 days. If you need the site for a longer period, save it in your bookmarks.

To view a list of pages that were open on this tab:

  1. Open the tab.
  2. Click and hold .

The  icon appears only on tabs where you viewed several pages. If the icon is unavailable, go to your entire browsing history.

Sync the history

Your history is partially synced:

  • The history of pages that a user visited on their computer is synced. If you reinstall your browser and then enable syncing, your history will display at browser://history/.
  • The history of pages that the user visited on other devices is not displayed in the Yandex Browser interface. However, if after syncing you start entering the address for a site that you visited on another device, the address will appear in your search suggestions. Sites pinned to the Tableau are an exception to this rule.

To disable history syncing:

  1. Click   → Settings → Sync settings.
  2. In the What to sync section, deselect History.
