WWW FAQs: I found a cool web page but I lost it. How do I get back to it?


2005-08-18: Check your web browser's "history" window. In Firefox, this is accessed through the "Go" menu, followed by the "History" option. In Internet Explorer, click on the "History" button (the clock with the arrow). Here you can open up a history of your browsing on various dates or use a search feature to locate a particular page you have accessed in the past. If you can't find what you're after this way, use a search engine to locate the page. To find it more quickly, search for a phrase that appeared on the page and is unlikely to appear on many other pages.
