This is actually possible in Windows 10 with the History feature, though  a lot of people seem to be unaware that is exists. Personally, I didn’t know about it until recently either.


After launching the Calculator app, you can view the History in two ways. The first way is simple: either click the icon in the top right corner or press the Ctrl + H keyboard shortcut. Both do the same thing, which you can see above.
