    Edge-When I right click back arrow it shows no history


    In IE I could right click the back arrow and see my history and select a previous page, I can't do that in Edge. I right click-nothing, I left click and hold and nothing.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a fix?

    Thanks

    Yes, everybody has a problem because that ability no longer exists. During testing, I turned in Feedback to MS three different times complaining about that but they haven't listened. I use that facility quite often each day in the work I do.

    Edge is a new browser, and doesn't yet have all the features you might expect in a browser that's been around for a long time. These features will come in later releases.

    Well thanks for replying. Crazy how few features it actually has, between Edge and the nag box that comes up every time I click a link in Outlook, I'm using Chrome more than ever. Actually gotten to like it the more I use it. For some reason, no matter how many times I click the box to "Always use IE" or make IE the default browser it doesn't take. For now Chrome is the default.

    The ability still exists, in fact it's a little more expansive. You just access it differently. To see the list of recently visited pages, click the menu icon (3 horizontal bars in the top right, next to the 'Bookmarks' star), then the 'History' icon (Looks like a clock face with a counter-clockwise arrow around it) The list that pops up will be the last hours pages, then links to 'earlier today', 'yesterday' last week' etc.

    Did you find a way to press down, or right-click on the "back" arrow, to see a page visited in the last few minutes and quickly go back to that page? That's what even a bare bones browser should allow.

    No way Microsoft simply forgot to include this basic function. I'm suspecting that Microsoft somehow gets ad revenue from each page we visit on many sites. Skipping a page robs M.S. of a penny or two. Remember, Win10 is free to us, but is loaded with revenue generators for Microsoft.

    I have to agree with you, this was done on purpose. Not sure if it was for ad revenue, to increase speed, make it leaner or what. Releasing the browser without such a basic function and two months later it is still missing? That leaves no doubt that it was intentional.

    Don't even get me started on the dropped support for Accelerators. I've been very happy with Chrome, except for maybe the way they do Bookmarks, seems like I have to dig for the ones I imported from IE.

    I only used Chrome for a short time because it didn't allow me to do a resizing of the desired object (a webpage, or coupon, etc..) before printing it. IE allowed this flexibility in the Print Preview window. Now, along comes Edge and it's just like Chrome in this regard. Thank-goodness Microsoft didn't lock us out of using Internet Explorer. I still have to use it frequently.

    Actually that doesn't solve the problem.
    History was always available in IE as a separate function.

    Right clicking the back arrow allowed you to go back several recently visited pages.
    The big advantage to this is when adverts insert themselves as history they stop the back arrow working and so you could skip them by right clicking.

    I've just encountered the problem because my settings blocked an advert resulting in "Blank Page".
    This doesn't show up in history and because the right click back arrow function is no longer there I had no option but to start again searching for the website.

    I found the back arrow right click very useful and used it all the time on sites that are loaded with adverts such as Ebay.

    Shouldn't be too much of a challenge for MS to re-install it should it?
