Non-Excel Tip

Trapped In A Webpage (Internet Explorer)

Have you ever visited a webpage and pressing the Back button on your browser wouldn't return you to the previous site. You were 'stuck' in that website. This is becoming very common on the Internet so you have probably already experienced it.

I don't know why people design websites to do that. Do they think you will stay there because your Back button doesn't work? It is very frustrating when it happens and I always make a note never to return to that website again.

There is a simple solution to this, rather than closing your browser window. There is a small dropdown arrow on your Back button. Clicking on the arrow will reveal a list of recently visited sites. Anytime you are 'stuck' in a website, you can escape by selecting a previously visited site from this list.
