Sharepoint - how can I automatically add links to new pages/libraries?

Whenever I create a new page, or add an app in SharePoint, I've no idea how to get back to it from where I'm at, if say, I got into settings or something.
Is there a way to leave a trail or to where I last was without having to hit back button?
Also what's the easiest way to create a link to a page I just created? Do I have to always add a new link, then copy/paste the direct URL from the page/library just created (if I can find it)?

What version of SharePoint are you using? Here is some generic information for you...

SharePoint can be set to automatically add links to either the top navigation or the side navigation or both. You can choose to add links automatically to pages or sub sites or both. You can also manually add navigation.

The most common way to set that navigation is through site settings. Once in site settings go to the section named "Look and Feel". Within that section you will see the link to "Navigation". Once on that page it is very self explanatory how to work with navigation. If you don't see the button for navigation, then you may need to enable the publishing feature for the site.

Another that is very important is the "All Site Contents" link. That is on the left side of the page. Go there and you will see all of your lists and libraries. You can also go to the document libraries where you created your pages in from this location. Your pages are probably in either the library named "Pages" or "Site Pages".

Hope that helps...

Hi thanks for the feedback.

It's SharePoint Online in Microsoft's O365. So whatever the latest is I guess? It's been confusing too because things are in different places.
For example, creating a new sub-site is now under Site Contents, then under the "new" drop down menu.
Documentation on the contrary shows it under Settings or other places.

I will go over the rest and follow-up.

I use the "Open in a new tab" option so that I always have my main or start page in the browser. Yes, it can become confusing but just hang in there!
