Forward may refer to any of the following:
1. When referring to e-mail, forward is a button or feature that allows you to take a received e-mail and send it to one of your contacts.
2. With an Internet browser, forward moves you forward a page. It only works if you have previously used the back button. If you have not gone back, and your browser shows a forward button, it will be grayed out.
In some cases (e.g., online game), "forward" may also be the up arrow on the arrow keys that moves your character forward.
