If you want to find out what happened recently on your Windows PC, say which programs or files were opened or saved, or which USB devices were connected to it, then you can either dig deep into the Windows Registry and Event log, or use specialized software which makes the process more comfortable.

Nirsoft created several programs in the past that assist you in finding out more about the various actions and events on a machine running Windows.

This guide looks at six programs by Nirsoft that you can use for that purpose. All programs are portable and compatible with all recent versions of Windows including Windows 10.
