Windows 10: Back and Forward Buttons in Edge - dropdown list

    Back and Forward Buttons in Edge - dropdown list


    In previous versions of IE, there has always been a way to access the recent pages you visited by using the back and forward buttons. By seeing a list of the pages, you could then select the specific one you wanted to go to instead of clicking through one page at a time until you finally reached your destination. I find this function extremely valuable and use it constantly.

    I have not been able to find the same functionality in Windows Edge yet, and my search on the internet has not found any information about this issue. Is this function not possibly any longer? Has there been any discussion of Windows bringing it to Edge? If not, it is almost a deal breaker for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    You are correct. It is not available in EDGE. I reported this through tester Feedback channels twice since I have been testing Win 10 Spartan and then Edge and have received no response from MS. I use that feature frequently on a Toshiba laptop trouble Forum every day and will NOT continue with Edge if they don't correct that oversight. Otherwise, Edge is a very good browser and that from a guy who hated IE.

    Well, that is a glaring omission. After all, it's been a staple with IE for many years. I don't see how on earth there could be any good reason for leaving this out. And I agree; Edge is a nice browser. It'd be a shame to not be able to use it because of the lack of this feature (and maybe one or two others).

    Bumping.

    Anybody else that can help with this? Any additional or different information than the above?
