Keep in the Original Forum after Move RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I am moving a thread to another forum, I'm brought up to that forum after the move and have to press back button twice to return to the place I started from. I am wondering if it would be possible to keep in the same place before and after the move.

    Thanks.

  • I think starting recently it works OK, e.g. after I move a thread I remain in the original forum, which was desired behavior. It could have been one of the recent forum's updates.

  • What I do is open the thread in new window, do the move, and then just close that window and I'm back to underlying thread view where I started from.

  • I right click the "Back" button in my browser and go back a few pages to where I want. There are several situations where this seems to be necessary, including when I move a thread. Other cases include when I filter the view.

    Unfortunately, on my Windows RT 8 tablet with IE 11 (and no mouse) I see no way to right click the "Back" button, so I often need to click "Back" repeatedly. Worse, in some cases there are a series of "Continue" screens in the "Back" queue that I need to negotiate before I get where I want. Sometimes I give up and need to start over navigating to where I want to go.

    Naomi,

    I have seen that as well - sometimes it works well for me as I have forgotten to post in the thread letting the OP know I am moving it, and why, so it's helpful to still be in the thread :)

    Richard,

    I don't have a Win 8 tablet of any sort, so this might not work, but on my 'droid if I hold my finger on a link (such as the back button) it brings up the right click menu.

    IIRC, it also works on my Win 8.1 touchscreen laptop.

  • On my Windows 8.1 RT tablet I also get a menu when I hold my finger or a stylus on the back button. But the only choice is "Back". Sometimes I can skip over the "Continue" screens by tapping twice in rapid succession. Still I often want to go back several pages and it can very difficult on a tablet.

    I just attached a usb mouse to my tablet and found there is no right click menu on the back button.

  • Wow - that's too bad - my 8.1 laptop behaves as I described...

    Sounds like you are using MUF IE?  Use the Open in Desktop button and then see if your browser History shows up?  (I don't know if it does but I think it should.  MUF IE is essentially just a UX filter for the same browsing functionality that Desktop IE uses...  Ha!  Vain hope.  Desktop IE is launched without the MUF IE tab's Browse stack (aka "Travel-log")

    So, does swiping back work for you?  I always seem to reach too far and end up dragging in another MUF app--and in W8.1.1 that typically ends up being split screen.  I still haven't found a really efficient way to undo that mess and achieve what I wanted.  When I have a keyboard I use  Alt-CursorLeft to avoid swiping mistakes and ambiguities.
