If you keep hitting the backward navigation button, the navigation will take you until you reach the first page you had started with.

Navigate Forward to Next Pages

Once you finish the previous pages, you can continue reading or browsing from the last page using the forward navigation. It will take you to the prior page of the session. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Launch the Edge app for Android.
  2. Navigate through a few pages in the backward direction.
  3. Tap the Right-facing Arrow (→) to access the latest page.

It will take you to the last page of the navigation from where you have moved backward and later greyed out.

Bottom Line

The Edge app has integrated navigation that can help move forward and backward within the web pages. The forward navigation arrow is greyed out on the latest page, while the backward arrow is disabled on the first page.

Taping and holding these navigational buttons will display the browsing history with recent pages within the navigation sequence.

Similarly, you can navigate the next or previous pages in the Edge on a computer. Navigation is an integral part of web browsing across all web browsers.
