Open the Tools in that click the Internet Options in that click on the Advanced tab in that click the "Restore to default" box and click Apply. This should restore the Internet Explorer to it's original settings. Also you want to go back to the previous page but the back button is unavailable means you go to the history.

The missing back button is an indication that your current page has opened in a new window. Either select the previous window from your taskbar, or access history with the Ctrl-Shift-H keyboard shortcut to get back to the page you were expecting.

Right click the gray space at the top of the page and display all the tool bars, I would assume that a toolbar is missing from the internet explorer browser, try downloading firefox.

If the back button is missing on your Internet Explorer it is most likely that you've customized the toolbar (possibly accidentally), depending on your version of IE. Never fear though, you can eliminate the need for it by holding the ALT key and pressing LEFT on the arrow keys.

See if Standard Buttons toolbar is enabled. Click View on top toolbar. Then go to Toolbars. Verify you have Standard Buttons checked. You may also use the keyboard shortcut for the back button. Simply press the Backspace button on your keyboard.

In the internet explorer Click on view , toolbar and select customize. Find the back button in the available toolbar buttons and add to current toolbar buttons


Answer by  jessgirl2 (319)

If the back button is missing, it's probably because there is no page to go back to because you've just opened a new browser window or tab. If you've already closed the page you want to go back to, you'll have to look in your browser's history to find it again.

That is a very interesting dilemma. You can try uninstalling and re-installing Internet Explorer to get the button back. Otherwise, don't know what to tell you.

Go to the menu field. select "view" in that. you have many options with toolbar. select toolbar now. In that select the final option and check whether back button is in left box. select and click add. It comes to right box. If did, back button will appear again. Can use "default" button for restoring.

First open the tools and go to the internet option then click in the advanced tap. In it click restore to default box and also click apply option. Then you should have to restart the internet explorer to it's original setting. We can also use Ctrl-Shift-H shortcut from keyboard to solve this.
