I"m posting this because the princetoneclub.org in other threads utterly miss the problem and their solutions won"t help.

You are watching: Chrome keeps going back to previous page

Sometimes, when using the mouse on Chrome, it will Go Back a page for no apparent reason. This has just caused me to lose multiple hours of writing.

This is not caused by a virus: restarting the computer, purging the cache, downloading antivirus software won"t do anything. The reason is, I don"t think it"s directly causing it to go back: I think that Windows sometimes misinterprets input from the mouse and so "left click" becomes "right click immediately followed by a left click". You can test it for yourself, that results in you Going Back because that"s the top option of the drop-down menu on Chrome.

So I have two questions:

-How can I fix Window"s input of my mouse?

OR

-How can I change the Chrome dropdown menu so that the top option is less consequential. I"m sick of this but I especially don"t want to lose hours of writing again.

Hi Loic. I"m Greg, an installation specialist, 10 years awarded Windows MVP, and Volunteer Moderator, here to help you.Have you tried another mouse, just to rule out that the mouse is at fault - which is unlikely if it only happens in Chrome.

You also mention the right click context menu which does cause known issues in Windows 10, often fixed by curbing conflicts caused by add-ins, which in this case could even be Chrome:

If not this confirms it"s a Chrome issue so let"s do what is know to fix most Chrome issues in Windows 10:Reset Chrome following this guide: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-reset-google-ch...If that doesn"t fix it then Reinstall Chrome: Right click empty area of Task bar to open Task manager​. If necessary show More Details Under "Processes," look for "Google Chrome" or "chrome.exe." Click it, then click End process. Then go into C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (86) to find the Google folder and delete the Chrome Folder.You may need to Take Ownership first using this handy tool that will install to your right click mouse button:https://www.askvg.com/add-take-ownership-option...On the View tab of File Explorer then tick Hidden Files, open C:\Program Data to do the same.Go into Start > Windows Settings (gear icon) > Apps > Apps & Features > Google Chrome > Uninstall.Restart PC to reinstall Chrome from fresh download here: https://www.google.com/chrome/I hope this helps.
