Whilst setting a temporary placemarker is certainly an option I personally find it much easier to simply press shift enter on a link on a web page. This has the affect of forcing your browser to open a link in a new window. Instead of hitting the alt left arrow to go back you simply use control w to close the page to return to your original page where hopefully your original placement should be undisturbed. At least that has always worked for me.

I have been frustrated by this, too, especially if I’m trying to capture bits of information from the site. Like another suggested, I have started using setting a temporary placemarker with Control Windows K. Then, when you come back to the webpage, hit the K key and you’ll jump to the placemarker.

How do I stop the cursor on a web page from jumping back to the top of the page when I’ve left the page and returned to it, only to find myself at the top and having to find my place again?
