Computer Tips Wednesday

Mimi Witcher, College Instructor, Teacher of the Year and co-founder of Computer School for Seniors will be sharing her user friendly computer tips on Wednesdays.

This is a “quick tip” I learned from my daughter when she saw me clicking the Back Button repeatedly trying to find a web page I had previously been viewing. The Back Button is at the top left corner of your screen when you are out on the Internet:


Well, there is a quicker, more efficient way to return to your original site or go back a few web pages. Just click the down arrow NEXT to the Back/Forward Buttons:


When you do that a menu drops down showing all the places you have been since you started with this session on the Internet:


Just click on where you want to go on the menu and you’re off to the site you want to return to. When you close the Internet, the menu clears. Then when you open the Internet again and start moving around this menu starts collecting the names of the sites you visit.

In the immortal words of Dr. Who, “Gosh that takes me back…or is it forward? That’s the trouble with time travel, you never can tell!”

Enjoy your Wednesday!
