On Windows 10, the PS extension PsReadline comes with PowerShell 5 by default. Get-Content on the following to view your full command history.
To make it available on Windows 7, you have to make sure you have the latest Framework and PowerShell 5 installed. Then you can install the PsReadline module.
I just did on a Windows 7 (64) machine:
(executionpolicy : remotesigned)
Install-Module PSReadLine ( I was asked to install NuGet-anycpu.exe, and answered yes).
Your history will now be stored in the file mentionned above (verified)
Run Get-PSReadlineKeyHandler to have a list of PSReadline Key bindings.

As far as I'm aware, once you close a PowerShell console all history and logs are disposed.
You could check out something like: Giving PowerShell a Persistent History of Commands
Of course this won't retrieve anything you've already done, it will only start logging from the point you install it.
EDIT: PowerShell 5.0 appears to have implemented a persistent history, available even after restart, accessible via the usual ways.
