What is a Keyboard History?

A keyboard history is a log of all the keys that have been pressed on a keyboard. This log can be used to track what has been typed on a keyboard and, in some cases, to recover lost data. Keyboard histories are stored in a variety of places, such as in the computer’s system files, in the registry, or in the cloud. In some cases, they may also be stored on the keyboard itself.
