    Close all Tabs


    When using a search engine and having the need to return to a previous page, at present I am unable to do so. All I can do is either "Cancel" or "Close all Tabs" . This means I lose the site and have to start all over again. I am using Windows10 64byte. Can anyone tell me how to overcome this problem please?

    You didn't mention what Web Browser you're using, however from your description it sounds like you are using the 'X' in the top right of the Web Browser to close the webpage, rather than just closing the tab the webpage is in.

    Using the 'X' in the top right of the Web Browser, will close the entire Web Browser including all tabs, hence why you get the message asking whether you want to "Close All Tabs". So instead, try using either the back button to go back a page, or if the back button doesn't give you the option to go back a page due to it being 'greyed out', then use the 'X' in the tab itself to close just that one tab.
