Is there a way to make a link to a page that gives list of recently viewed pages?

I want a shortcut in my browser bar that brings up recently viewed pages. I know there are places where you can access the list a dropdown, but that's not as convenient when you don't already have a Confluence page/tab open.

Sort of.

One way is to add a 3rd party RSS Feed Reader to the menu bar, then follow the RSS Feed Builder instructions:

Actually, I think I found an answer to my own question:

If you copy the link address for 'Recently Viewed' in the dropdown under your profile picture in the upper right, and then paste it into the browser address box, it gives a passable recently viewed pages page. No arguments to hack for changing the length of list or anything, but still reasonably useful. 

The form of the URL is https://<yourwiki>.atlassian.net/wiki/users/viewuserhistory.action

Having a bookmark to this gives me 2 clicks to the 11 most recently viewed pages, which are often the ones I want to visit again quickly.

Once you put that URL in the browser's URL field and hit Enter, you can then drag that URL to your bookmark bar making it a one-click solution.
