  • Go to Windows Start > All Programs > SAP Front End > SAP GUI Configuration (1)
  • In your GUI Configuration options click on ‘Local Data’ folder (2) and then ‘History’ (3)
  • Change history status to ‘OFF’ (4) and click on ‘Apply’ (7)
  • Click on history status back to ‘ON’ (5) and click on ‘Apply’ (7)
  • Click ‘Clear History’ (6) button and finally click ‘OK ’ (8) to close this window

Now this should take care of the history not getting saved. Reopen SAP GUI and try it out!

Special Thanks to my friend Amritpal Flora

      Hi Rohit,

      I believe this procedure solves the history problem but may not save old history — do test it out on a sandbox and let me know.
