How to view USB History of Windows PC?

USBDeview is a small utility that lists all USB devices that currently connected to your computer, as well as all USB devices that you previously used.
For each USB device, extended information is displayed: Device name/description, device type, serial number (for mass storage devices), the date/time that device was added, VendorID, ProductID, and more.
USBDeview also allows you to uninstall USB devices that you previously used, disconnect USB devices that are currently connected to your computer, as well as to disable and enable USB devices.

                 Download USBDeview For X32 System
                 Download USBDeview For X64 System  
You can also use USBDeview on a remote computer, as long as you login to that computer with admin user.

Connecting To Remote Computer
The following command-line options allows you to connect to remote computers. You must login to the remote computer with admin user in order to use these options.
  • /remote <\\Computer Name>
    Allows you to connect a single remote computer.
    For Example:
    USBDeview.exe /remote \\MyComp
  • /remotefile <Computers List File>
    Allows you to connect multiple computers, and view all their USB activity in one window. The computers list file should be a simple Ascii text file with computer names separated by colon, semicolon, space, tab characters or CRLF.
    For Example:
    USBDeview.exe /remotefile "c:\temp\comp.txt"


In order to successfully get full admin access to the remote computer, read this Blog post: How to connect a remote Windows 7/Vista/XP computer with NirSoft utilities.

Connecting To external SYSTEM registry file

If you have the 'SYSTEM' registry file of external operating system, you can use the following command-line option to read the USB devices list from it: 
/regfile <SYSTEM Registry File>
For Example:
USBDeview.exe /regfile "c:\temp\regfiles\SYSTEM"
USBDeview.exe /regfile "d:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM"
This option has some limitations:
  • You cannot read a Registry file of Windows XP/2003/Vista from Windows 2000 Machine.
  • USBDeview works in read-only mode. (You cannot uninstall a device from external file)
