    IE 11 app: back/forward button covers page content

    I have a tablet with Windows 8.1 installed. In the office I'm using it with an external monitor and a keyboard/mouse.

    When I'm moving the mouse in Internet Explorer 11 (App Mode) to the left or right side of the screen, a gray semi-transparent back/forward button will appear (see attached screenshot). By pressing on of these button you get to the previous or next webpage.

    My problem: On a visited website is a link on the exact same spot where the "back" button of IE 11 will appear. If i move my mouse over the link for clicking it, the "back" button of IE 11 will apper and cover the link so I can't click it.

    How can I click the coverd link or hide/turn off the "back" button of IE 11?

Back-button not working
I Google a subject and get a list of sites, select one and read. To return to the list I click the back-button, the screen goes blank and I have to press the 'windows' key and select Google again which brings the list back on screen. Frustrating waste of time. How can I activate the back-button?...

Yes, you can have your Start button back
I got a new computer with Windows 8. I put the Classic Shell on. It skips the worthless Metro interface and goes right to the desktop. Some observations. The Aero Glass interface is gone. Some guy has come up with a work around but I am a little jumpy about trying that. The "new look" 8...
