How to make an HTML back link with JavaScript?

To make an HTML back link with JavaScript, we call history.back when we click on the link.

For instance, we write

<a id="back-link">back</a>

to add a link.

Then we write

const element = document.getElementById("back-link");
element.onclick = (e) => {
  e.preventDefault();
  history.back();
};

to select the link with getElementById.

And then we set its onclick property to a function that calls preventDefault to stop the default link behavior.

Then we call history.back to go back to the previous page.
