Discover the most recent actions and events recorded by your computer, such as launched programs, accessed files, system craches, or PC restarts
LastActivityView is a lightweight and portable software application that enables you to view the latest activity recorded by your computer, such as program installers, files and folders opened, system shutdown or user log off.
Since installation is not a requirement, you can drop the executable file somewhere on the hard disk and just click it to run.
It is also possible to save LastActivityView to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine effortlessly and without previous installers.
An important aspect to take into account is that the Windows registry does not get updated with new entries, and files are not left behind on the HDD after program removal.
The interface is based on a standard window with a plain and simple layout, where the list with the recent activity is immediately populated at startup. You can view the action time and date, description, file name, full path and other information.
All or just selected items can be copied to the Clipboard or saved to TXT (regular, tab delimited, tabular), CSV, HTML (vertical or horizontal) or XML, for further scrutiny. A search function is provided throughout the list. Plus, you can show time in GMT.
LastActivityView has a good response time, is capable of detecting activity prior to its first run, and runs on a very low amount of CPU and RAM, so it does not affect the computer’s overall performance. It does not disrupt normal user activity either, since it can be minimized to the taskbar.
We have not come across any problems in our tests, since the tool did not hang, crash or show error messages. In conclusion, LastActivityView provides a simple method for viewing recent activity recorded by your machine, and it should please all types of users, thanks to its overall simplicity.
