What browser are you using? I would guess it is Explorer. First thing if Internet Explorer, is to verify you have the latest version, which is 11. left click help and choose About, to see the version. My 11 shows an icon for back at the extreme left side of the address bar. Generally speaking, you can add or remove toolbars to your browser by right clicking on a blank space at the top of the browser screen. If you don't see selections, try a different blank spot.

Also note that you may think you are using Internet Explorer still but you are probably using the Edge Browser that is the default for Windows 10. Id does have a back button but it looks a bit different.
You can also try a different browser like Firefox instead.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Would it help if we called it a back arrow rather than back button?

The back button/arrow in Internet Explorer allowed me to right-click
and choose a page to go back to. Edge doesn't. I wonder if that is
what the poster wants.

There is no option to uninstall\delete Microsoft edge, if you're just using it. Otherwise you can reinstall the browser.

If the reinstallation doesn't help, I suggest you to perform System Restore. Select the restore point date prior to date when you had upgraded.

Refer to the following link:

Disclaimer: Application /programs that were installed after the last restore point will be lost. You may have to reinstall the application/programs.

Piter: Unfortunately the OP has installed Windows 10 presumably as an upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 so System Restore will not help here.
