A Light Bulb Moment

10 posts in this topic

Well, I know that I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to computers but I've just realized that when I am on a page and want to go back a few pages, I can right click on the arrow and it lists all the pages I've been on and I can pick where I want to move to. Wow, am I the only person that didn't know this? I'm so excited. That makes it easier than clicking, clicking, clicking. I'm not sure I have explained this too well so I hope you undersatnd me. Thanks for letting me share this probably old information. Kay

Hi Belle. At the top of your computer screen where you move back and forward between pages. In Windows 7 it's a big blue arrow. Does that help any? I'm sorry I'm not clearer with my message. Kay

I discovered that trick too!! It works in the Firefox browser (which I use). So great for going back to a page I viewed earlier.

Belle, this is a feature in some of the newer web browsers: IE9 (and maybe 8, can't remember), Firefox, and Chrome. Internet Explorer 7 does not have that feature.

Kay, I've been around computers for a long time and I didn't know that! So you are not alone. LOL Very neat trick. I do have IE 9 on the desktop and just found it works here. I use Chrome on my laptop so I'll have to try it there.
