How to Check the Keyboard History in a PC

by Chappy Sinclair

The best way to monitor the keyboard activity of your computer is to install a keylogger. A keylogger records all keys pressed and saves that information to an easy to read text log. Keyloggers work well for recording instant message conversation and keeping track of Internet whereabouts.

Launch REFOG Keylogger.

Check the "Monitor all users" box in the configuration wizard. Click the "Next" button.

Select the records you want to record. Specifically, to record keyboard history, make sure the "Keystrokes Typed", "Clipboard", and "Chat Activity" boxes are checked.

Decided how you want to receive the log. You can view it on your computer or have it emailed to you. Enter your email information if you want it sent via email.

Select the level of invisibility. Hiding the program will make it easier to keep your intentions hidden and lessens the chance of someone finding the software. Click "Next". Verify and finalize your settings. The keylogger is now active.
