Once you are in your Moodle course, you can use your browser's navigation buttons (the forward and back arrows), but that practice may make you confused about where you are in the course. A better navigation method is to use the "breadcrumb trail" built into Moodle.
The breadcrumb trail shows the pages you have passed through to get to your current location. They are shown in the top left corner of the page and clicking on them will take you to that location in the course.
The image above shows that the page you are on at the moment is My private files. Clicking on My home would take you to your My home page. The same principle applies with each of the activity types, so if you were in a quiz you would have a link to a list of all quizzes in your course.
