I know this has been idle for a while, but I was looking for the same thing, and got this code working. There's almost no documentation in the code, but the fun is learnin as you go, right?

Hope this helps.....

Const $dump_file_name = "history_dump.txt"
Const $dump_dir = "C:\"
$objDump = ObjCreate("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
With $objDump
    $dump = .createtextfile ($dump_dir & $dump_file_name, True, 0)
$sh = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
Const $ssfHISTORY = 34
$history = $sh.NameSpace($ssfHISTORY)
;first level items a grouped by date
;(today, yesterday, last w)
For $item In $history.items
    $dump.WriteLine($history.GetDetailsOf ($item, -1))
    If $item.isFolder Then
        $itFol = $item.GetFolder
        For $item2 In $itFol.items
            $dump.WriteLine(@TAB & $itFol.GetDetailsOf ($item2, -1))
            If $item2.isFolder Then
                $itFol2 = $item2.GetFolder
                For $item3 In $itFol2.items
                    $url = $itFol2.GetDetailsOf ($item3, 0)
                    $title = $itFol2.GetDetailsOf ($item3, 1)
                    $date_vis = $itFol2.GetDetailsOf ($item3, 2)
                    $dump.WriteLine(@TAB & @TAB & @TAB & $date_vis & " : " & $title)
$dump.close ()
; open textfile
$sh.namespace ($dump_dir).parsename ($dump_file_name).InvokeVerb ()
