Finding files

Is there a temp directory or a file where all the stuff you have ever opened up or viewed on a CD or floppy is stored? Like a temp folder in windows. Thanks

Well, there is a /tmp directory that stores random junk.

But if you want the history of everything you've typed (thats the closest I can think of), check the .bash_history file in your home directory. (notice the "." before bash)
