I am using Prospect Mail, which I understand to be an electron app. If I click on a link within an email, it takes me to the link destination. At that point I cannot get back to my email inbox -- even through closing the app.

Is there a way to simulate the back button in an electron app, or otherwise go back to the original root?

I find nothing in the documentation here.

    What happens when you press Backspace or Alt-Left Arrow?

  • Thank you, @muru, for the response. In my example, there is a video in the new page. The arrow key only executes video controls. the "ctl + [" key seems to have no effect nor does the "alt + <-" key work.

  • Can you press Tab to force the focus to move outside the video?

  • @muru; Doesn't seem to work. Also tried clicking away, scrolling down the page so the video is not in view ... nada.
