    Would anyone know how to recover that? It was located on the left next to the the very top line that says quilting board.com. I was able to find out that if you use alt and the left arrow key it will do the same thing but I sure do miss that button. I know there a many on this board that are very computer literate. Unfortunatly that is not me!

    I think that would be the back button on your Browser window Maggie. Which Browser are you using??? Windows Explorer??

    Try pressing F11 on your keyboard, that will probably fix it.

    No, F11 brought all of the tools back but not the arrow
    Thank you for that!

    Ok - go to this link and go down to the Workaround section "The buttons are not available". This should get you back on track (fingers crossed).

    Right click on your empty space by your menu bar and check mark the navigation toolbar. That should bring back your back and forward buttons with the arrows.

    Go to View, and Toolbars. You may be able to restore it back to initial setting.

    It's rare if I use the back arrow. I hit the Backspace key!
