I have a Word document with internal links (i.e. a link will jump to anchor in the same document). When I click on one of these links, it jumps to that location, as it is supposed to.

How can I get back to the location I was at before I clicked the link? I can't find a back or forward button anywhere.

Also, if I'm in Outline view, it changes the view to Print Layout. Is there any way to have the back button also switch the view back to how it was originally? In other words, I'm looking for a way to undo the link click.

I'm using Microsoft Word 2011 (for Mac).
