How can I see how I got to a certain webpage?

Posted

Hi.

I was watching a YouTube video, and suddenly the tab changed to another, completely unrelated webpage. As far as I know, I am pretty sure I didn't click anything (I had just been distracted for literally a second so was re-reaching for my mouse and technically could've clicked something, but I also went back and found no links whatsoever that would reasonably lead to www.dansk.net, the site I ended up at).

I would love for this to be human error but I don't see it so there must be another explanation and I would like to get to the bottom of this to see if there's possibly some malware in the system but a scan turned up zilch.

I know I can check the pages I viewed with the History window. But is there any way I can find out how I got to said pages? Something along the lines of 'you clicked a link on this other page' or 'youtube autoplay' or 'bit.ly forwarded you to this address'

Because I think that might help in finding out what happened.
