How to Navigate Backward and Forward in Edge Android?

Blog posts and articles generally have lots of hyperlinks to make people understand every part properly. But sometimes, opening this many hyperlinks takes us away from the page which we were reading. Here, Edge Browser can help you, since you can simply navigate to the forward or backward pages by tapping the forward-facing and backward-facing arrows at the bottom of the screen.

This might occur to anyone when they are reading through an article or blog and we click on the link and start reading it. However, we often forget the original topic or page that we came from. Hence, backward navigation helps in moving back to previous pages.

This always happens to me and I understand it after a while. Hence, I hit on the backward navigation button to navigate back to previous pages which I missed reading. Once I am done reading the previous pages, I navigate again to the latest page and continue reading. Here the navigation helps me to move to and fro within the browsing session.

The Microsoft Edge browser does have a forward and backward navigation button that helps in browsing between the pages. It’s quite easy and requires no setup.

I use the forward and backward navigation buttons to move swiftly between the pages. Especially when I am reading an article online. It helps me skip back to the previous pages if I want to re-read something that irked my curiosity back then.
