No back arrow?

    I am probably being very dense, but when using the site, I can not find a back arrow to return to a previous topic. If I read a thread, in order to leave it, the only way I can find is to go back to the 'Forum' start page, which if I am reading a thread with lots of comments , is frustrating.
    My operating system is Windows 8.
    Am I missing something very obvious? Any advice gratefully received.

    Maisie,

    The browser back arrow in the upper left corner of IE 11 will give you a history of pages viewed if right clicked. Otherwise you can open any number of tabs by middle clicking the wheel, each with it's own history if you move around in them.


    Regards ...

    Thanks Cee, my problem was that I was looking for an arrow, and the top left icon is the helmet. However, clicking on it - both right and left - brings up a list of tasks which includes 'back' so problem solved. Thanks

    Masie,

    I'm on Win 7 and don't normally use Internet Explorer. Here's an example of the back arrow dropdown after moving around quickly in MSM for a quick example.

    I noticed sometimes it doesn't always list all pages visited only going back one or two times. If you don't get a dropdown menu you have a problem. Personally I tend to just middle click and open up a lot of tabs.

    Yup that will rotate you through the various sites on a tab/window if you are the keyboard type. Problem is I can never remember them ... :)
