Resolved Question

Go back on Safari

by ritamcbride / September 21, 2011 3:35 AM PDT

Good afternoon,
Is there a way to view previous pages on Safari without having to constantly hit the < button by the address? Can I view all the pages I was on currently and just pick the page I need to go back to?

Hold them down and you will find a list of pages you have recently visited.
Slide down and select the page you want, let go and, voila!
