If you want to enable the Forward button in Microsoft Edge, here is how you can do that. By default, you need to click on the link again to open a closed page. However, if you enable the Forward button, you can click on it to go forward in the Edge browser. It appears next to the back button in the Microsoft Edge browser.
Microsoft Edge is one of the best browsers that you can use on your Windows 11/10 computer. No matter whether you want to browse the internet, watch videos, read websites, play online games, or anything else, relying on the Edge browser could be a wise step for you.
By default, Edge displays only the Back button in the toolbar or before the address bar (in the top left corner). This button helps you go back when you have opened a page by mistake or you want to go back randomly from the current page to the previous page.
However, there is no option to go forward. In order to do that, you must click on the same link as before that you used to open the recently closed page. At times, it could be troublesome for you. That is why you can enable the Forward button so that you can go forward to the same page in one click. The best thing is that you can turn on the Forward button using in-built settings.
