    List all recently run programs on a Windows PC

    By Martin Brinkmann on January 12, 2015 in Software - Last Update: January 12, 2015 0

    Do you know which programs ran in the past on your Windows PC? It is likely that you know at least some of them, the programs that you have started manually for example.

    Depending on how the computer is used, it may be just a tiny fraction of executable files that are run on the system.

    Files may be executed automatically by the operating system for example, or by other users who have access to the system (and same user account).

    If you want to display a list of recently run programs on the PC, you can do so in two different ways:

    1. Check the Windows Registry and Prefetch data manually.
    2. Run ExecutedProgramsList, a free program that does all the heavy lifting for you.
    Registry

    Several Registry Keys store information about programs that have been executed previously on the system:

    ยท HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\MuiCache
