Internet Explorer 10 Back button does not work properly

June 2024 Update:

You can now prevent PC problems by using this tool, such as protecting you against file loss and malware. Additionally it is a great way to optimize your computer for maximum performance. The program fixes common errors that might occur on Windows systems with ease - no need for hours of troubleshooting when you have the perfect solution at your fingertips:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


Before continuing, Run Windows Update and make sure you have all the latest updates installed.

1] Start Internet Explorer 10 without add-ons and see if this solves the problem. Open a high PDC, type .exe -extoff and press Enter to open Internet Explorer in No Add-ons mode.

To isolate the problematic add-on from the browser, you can use IE’s Manage Add-ons function. Deactivate the add-ons individually and check whether one of the installed add-ons is responsible for creating this problem.

(2) Turn Internet Explorer off and on and see if it helps

Open Control Panel > Control Panel > All Programs and Functions > Turn Windows on or off. Clear the Internet Explorer 10 check box and click OK. Once the uninstallation is complete, restart your computer. Now reopen this setting and check the Internet Explorer box and restart your computer.

3] Reset Internet Explorer

If you find that your Internet Explorer is not working the way you want, you can easily reset Internet Explorer settings at this location if you think you need to repair Internet Explorer.

4] Uninstall Internet Explorer 10

Open Control Panel > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Installed Updates. Search for Windows Internet Explorer on Microsoft Windows. Right-click on Windows Internet Explorer (I think it should be KB2718695), then click Uninstall. When the process is complete, restart your PC to complete the uninstallation. The previous version of IE is restored.

Use this option if you want to uninstall Internet Explorer and return to the previous version of your IE. It is not possible to completely uninstall the version of IE provided with your Windows. This will uninstall later versions and return to the previous version.

Let’s hope something helps!

Although I have not faced this problem, I would like to know if any of you have.
