This must be somewhere in the help system, but I fail to find it with SE search which is not very good! So, how do I see the edit history?

    $\begingroup$ Do you just mean how to get a search to include previous versions of posts? $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 25, 2017 at 11:53

Click on the edit date shown, centered, immediately beneath the post:

This works everywhere else on SE wherever you have edit privileges.

  • $\begingroup$ I think it works independent of the edit privileges. Edit history is accessible to everybody. $\endgroup$
