Is there a keyboard shortcut to return to previous position?

The Shift + F5 seems to be back to last "editing position", rather than the last position of the cursor

Use Ctrl + Alt + Z

    @Dmitri: Ctrl+Alt+Z/Shift+F5 is "GoBack" and Alt+Left is "WebGoBack". – Cameron Sep 21 '17 at 20:10

You can use the keyboard shortcut for that command: Alt + Left Arrow.

  • Works better than the accepted answer, Also easier to use, as it does not require 3 key presses. – IFink Oct 6 at 16:51
