How to See The Websites Visited During The Incognito Mode and Delete Them

One of the features of any browser's incognito mode is that it does not store visited web pages in history. However, there is a method for displaying the last sites you accessed with your browser, regardless of whether or not you set it to incognito mode.

They will all appear in the same list.

When you enter a website, Windows accelerates its opening by storing the website's DNS information in your computer's DNS cache. Therefore, visits made with your browser are saved. This is not a site history, but a complete list of DNS including sites visited with or without the incognito mode, but also other online resources that have been stored by these sites.

The first thing to do is to enter the Windows command prompt. To do this, open the start menu and type the term cmd. The command prompt will appear in the results, and you need to click on it to open it.

The command prompt is a black screen on which you must type commands. To view the DNS history, type the command ipconfig /displaydns and press the Enter button. You will see the results immediately below the typed line.

A list of all DNS caches on your computer will appear.

Here you can see all the pages and online resources you have uploaded in all your browsers, including pages visited while in anonymous mode. You can examine the list and consult the pages you have entered in incognito mode, but they will appear mixed with the rest of the elements you have uploaded, in a list sorted in chronological order.

At this point, you will need a lot of patience, unless you are looking for specific pages.

If you want to search for specific pages, press Control + F; a search window will appear, from which you can search for names by clicking on Search.

And if you want to maximize your privacy, there is a method to remove all the records. What you need to do is go back to the command prompt and type the command ipconfig /flushdns.

You will immediately notice that, after typing it, the DNS cache will be empty.
