Below is an explicit excerpt from the Help file. How, please is this "not
clear enough?"

Genentech Nonclinical Statistics

Recorded plot histories are of class "SavedPlots". They have a print method,
and a subset method. As the individual plots are of class "recordedplot"
they can be replayed by printing them: see recordPlot.

 <<The active plot history is stored in variable .SavedPlots in the
workspace. >> [emphasis added]

Dear Prof. Ripley,

I read the recommended (?windows) end it was not clear enough!

BTW, I just found a discussion from ([R] RGui: windows-record and command
history Thomas 
Steiner (23 Mar 2006)) where Duncan wrote:

- The graphics history is stored in your current workspace in memory, and it
can get big.

I think it is the answer I was searching. Do you agree?
