Revisiting Previously Viewed Pages in a Browser Session

Microsoft has changed the way you access this feature in IE9. In IE8 and prior versions, you could quickly revisit recent pages in a browser session by clicking the arrow next to the back-forward button. In IE9, the back-forward buttons are much larger and there is no longer an arrow next to it…now you simply right click the back button and the drop down menu will appear. See images below:

Keep in mind, this is not the same as the History feature; it is a quick access feature for visiting pages you just viewed in a particular session. You can access History from this location too.

    Thank you so much for this information. I’ve spent the last two days trying to find a way to reinstate the “down arrow” (Recent Pages button). I use it a lot and was lost without it.
