Use the history of the calculator: - The Windows 10 calculator app isn't as simple as it sounds. It has several features that make it more powerful. It is a warehouse of standard algebraic calculations and is available in different flavors giving us options such as scientific mode, programmer mode or standard mode. You can generate the whole complex and convoluted world of logarithms and scientific formulas simply by giving you the inputs, and there you have it, calculating it in seconds and giving you quick answers. Another cool feature of the Windows Calculator app is the converter. All important units of measurement are converted into each other, taking you away from the hectic task of remembering equations.

Keeping track of your history will allow you to check your first calculations and make corrections when needed. This history feature does not require the high number of clicks required on a physical scientific calculator. Here you get the story right away. They are useful in cases where it is necessary to send accounting reports.

Here, I will walk you through the steps on how to enable history in Calculators. This is as effective as you could have used it to calculate bills or expenses or to solve your geometric problems. It is difficult for the human brain to remember all the digits correctly. Once you have History In mode, it publishes full lists of calculations you would have done hours ago and helps you remember them.

How to view history in the Calculator app

Step 1: To start working with the calculator, go to the search bar next to the Start menu. Type Calculator and click on the app.



Step 2: By default, you'll find it's set to Standard mode. Perform some sample calculations on it. This helps you to perform standard algebraic operations such as addition, multiplication, etc.

Step 3: Move to the icon with three horizontal lines on the left. This is where you can choose the mode of operation.

Choose Scientific and the image below shows how it would work. For example, to get the value of Sin (30), type 30 into the Calculator and hit the sin button. The corresponding result appears in seconds.

Step 4: Once the calculator is in Programmer mode, you will be able to perform digital logic operations such as AND, OR, XOR, etc. Also, the numbers will be represented in binary, octal or hexadecimal towards the top left.


  • Write the number.
  • Choose the options to execute the top buttons option as I DO NOT.

Step 5: Now click on the icon next to the Calculator mode title. The icon will be something like a clock. This represents the history of the calculator.

Let me represent you with an example


  • Open the calculator in scientific mode.
  • Perform random operations on it.
  • Once you have completed a series of operations, click on the icon that looks like a clock next to SCIENTIST.
  • See the story down.
  • Use the arrow button to move up and down in the history node. The image below represents how it will look.

Step 6: Right-click on the calculator open on the desktop to choose to copy and paste the figures above.
