Back Forward Buttons

I never realized until today that the Back Space key will act the same as the arrowed back button.

I looked for a forward key and that works with Alt and right cursor key. Also Alt left cursor key takes you back.

Over three years with the same laptop and still learning.

Very handy when using the mouse pad.

I wounder why there isn't a back forward key placed left and right of the mouse pad, or is there today.

Presumably you are referring to going back/forward through web pages in a browser?

As you've discovered, the backspace key goes back to the previous page. Shift+backspace will go forward to an already viewed page if you've gone back from it, but this behaviour won't apply in other programs, so be careful how you use them.
