One thing I've noticed about the relatively new sitewide layout is that I can't find a quick way to get back to www.stackexchange.com without finding StackExchange in the sites list. As a result, I am typing stackexchange in my toolbar a whole lot more often now. In particular, I tend to enjoy browsing the hot questions list and my own personal feed quite often so visit these pages on a daily basis. Is there an easy link to them that I'm missing?

(On the android app, there is a feed in the menu that I really appreciate, something like that on the desktop would be ideal!)

  • The "Hot Network Questions" text is a link to the full page of the hot questions. :) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Oct 27 '14 at 9:21
  • @ShadowWizard oh cool, didn't know that. Thanks :) – stanri Oct 27 '14 at 9:21

The Stack Exchange button is a link to http://stackexchange.com, you can middle-click (new tab), right-click (context menu), Shift-click (new window) or Ctrl-click (new tab) on it. Shortcuts may or may not work depending on your browser.

  • If I normal click or middle click the menu just appears. Thanks for the right click tip! – stanri Sep 15 '14 at 15:41

    Handy, but bad discoverability. That is where I would try to click. It looks like a typical logo/link combination. It even shows the hand cursor when hovering. But a click just open a menu. I use middleclicking a lot, yet I haven't discovered this feature until reading about it here. I just resorted to typing the URL each time. – David Balažic Apr 10 '15 at 15:32

    Doesn't work for me on Chrome. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jun 22 '15 at 8:07
  • @ShadowWizard Indeed, seems to be impossible on Chrome. I remember it working back then, but I'm not sure. – Stijn Jun 23 '15 at 10:33

On every page in every site, the "Hot Network Questions" text links to http://stackexchange.com/questions?tab=hot just like you wanted:

Enjoy! :)

Click on the YOUR COMMUNITIES text.

That will bring you to your user profile on SE, showing all your site accounts. Simply click on the SE logo to go to stackexchange.com

  • Ah, thanks. At least that's quicker than typing it into the menu bar. – stanri Sep 15 '14 at 15:25
