To view your bash history you simply enter the following command in the terminal

history

You will then be presented with list showing you what commands you entered in to the terminal.

If you use bleachbit to clean out your system every once in a while you might want to uncheck Bash History option.

The actual log file is located under your home directory, this is a hidden file named .bash_history so to view it you will need to show hidden files from the file manager or alternatively press click CTRL+H
