D08: Navigating back to original website

QUESTION: How do I get from the website a link took me to back to the original website I was on?

ANSWER: The first thing to try is the back arrow. If that doesn’t work you may have to re-access the original website by retyping the web address in the address text box at the top of the window. You can also find the address of recently visited sites by clicking on the down arrow at the right end of the address text box. (Click on the website you want to access). Or, if you bookmarked the site, go to your Bookmarks (or Favorites) and access the site from there.
