    IE 11 - close link and return to the same location


    In IE 11, if I click on a link on a page, then click the back arrow to leave that page, and go back to the original page, it takes me to the top of the original page, rather than were I was on that page. I think there must be a setting that controls this, but I can't find it. Any solutions?

    Hi there JudMC, welcome to Windows EightForums!

    Try an IE Reset from the Tools/Internet Options Menu.

    Thanks, that fixed it. Was it some add-on causing the problem?

Once something opens, even from desktop, it doesn't have a little red x in the corner and there doesn't seem to be a way to close it and return to where I was before.
