alt left arrow should do it.

I must not have been clear. Occasionally, when I press the search button, it does not take me to a results page. It takes me to a website and seems to bypass the results page. Its the results page I want to go to, not a particular website that pops up when I activate the search button. This doesn't happen often, but sometimes it does. I just need to know how to get back to the results page when the search engine bypasses it and brings up a website instead of the normal results page. Vicky

There's a JAWS component to this answer. However, I'm confused by your description. As you say, once you bring up a Google search results page and click on a link, you can return to the results page with alt-left arrow. However, I don't understand why you would then use the alt-right arrow. That would only return you to the page you just linked to. Here's what you need to do. On the standard Google results page, there are up to ten search results. You can reach them one by one by pressing the letter h for heading. If an item interests you, press enter on that link. If you then choose to return to the results page, press alt-left arrow (as you do now) and continue down the list of results with the letter h. Does this answer your question?

Subject: Searching in Google with JAWS
Hello List, I have become interested in finding out what happened to specific people in my past. When searching in Google with internet explorer, I am often taken to a specific website when I enter a person's first and last name. The website is usually not where I wish to go. I can alt and left arrow out of the site and back to the search page in Google; however, I can't seem to go anywhere else. I thought the alt right arrow took you forward, but apparently not. How do I get to a results list in Google from this unwanted website that comes up associated with the name I typed in the Google search edit field? Thanks for any suggestions. Vicky Lynn Golightly
