Why is it when I use google chrome and want to go back to the search bar there is no back button on google chrome and I have to go right back to the desk top and click on google chrome again yet in google itself I just click on the back arrow and return to the search bar

The 'disappearance' of the back button has often confused me, and has always turned out to be as a result of clicking a link causing a new tab to open - in which, of course, there is no 'back'. I know, from some web work that I do, that I ensure that anyone who clicks a link from our site is 'forced' to open a new tab - the idea being that 'our' tab is kept open rather than being overwritten by the linked page, hopefully resulting in increased dwell time. Some web content managers are less fussy - the result being inconsistency: sometimes, clicking on a link overwrites your current page, meaning that the 'back' option exists - but in other cases, a new tab opens - with no 'back' option.
