Ever had the situation where you need to go back to a web page you visited but can’t recall the URL or site? This happened to me this week. I knew the site name, but not the specific page.

This week I was working on a project where I needed to embed file names into a document. Typically, I open the File Properties dialog on Windows and grab the name.
