Another set of buttons on the Object Browser toolbar belongs to the Navigate Forward and Navigate
Back actions.

The pages you visit within the Object Browser are saved in MRU (most-recently used) order.

The commands are View.ObjectBrowserForward and View.ObjectBrowserBack. If you are using the Visual

Basic Settings, go to Tools–Options–Environment–Keyboard, and manually set the keyboard shortcuts
