Running Windows 7 and IE8. I've been trying to view my browsing history, but every time I click on History, it will only give me a list of my local searches (documents, saved files, etc.). It won't show me a list of internet sites I've visited. I've checked all my settings, and they're correct. When I click on the Favorites tab, there is no History tab within it. I have to right click on the arrow in the upper left-hand corner to find a History tab. But it still won't show me previously visited internet sites.

What can I do to correct this? Thank you!

Upgrade to IE11.
What you're undoubtably looking for will be the star in the upper right corner.

You could have setup that your browser deletes your history everytime you close the browser.
