Why doesn't Genes have a simple arrow feature enebling a searcher to return to the previous page. For example, when i am looking at Hot Matches and choose to view a hot match, it would be nice to be able to get straight back to the Hot match list when I've finished looking at that match. Instead i have to go back to the Hot Matches heading choose My Hot Matches and then select again the page I was on. It's got to be simpler than this!!

Don't you have a return click on your mouse?

or a back button on your browser?

Thanks everyone. The problem seems to be that some ofthe pages on Genes requiring a "SAVE" are right at the bottom of my screen and the only way I can get to them is by deleting some of the toolbars including the browser back button.

John, Try using changing the zoom level on your browser,

Hold down the Ctrl key then press the + or - key (plus or minus) you will need to zoom out ( minus ) to see the whole page

On my puter F11 gives full screen.Press again to revert.
the four arrows box under "Search Trees" is supposed to do the same but dont.

Thelma, F11 is another option but it does not work on some PC's

If you it doesn't work you may have a Fn key? Fn is short for function, try holding down the Fn key and then press F11
