Move back faster in your browser

Updated: 06/16/2017 by Computer Hope

The most commonly used feature in Internet browsers is the back button. All browsers today also support the ability of going back to any recently visited page. To access this feature, click the small down arrow next to the back buttons (pictured below) or click and hold the back button.

Down arrow next to back button

Holding the back button down or click the down arrow shows the most recent pages you've visited and allow you to go back to the page of your choice. This feature is especially helpful for those pesky pages that forward you to another page each time you press the back button or for any time you want to go back more than one page.

Bonus tip

The browser can go back even further than what's shown in the menu. If the page you want is not listed, click the last page, then repeat the steps above again until you get back to where you want.
