What, you wanna purty button to click on?  8^)

>From the top of the first page you see if you do M-x info:

  This (the Directory node) gives a menu of major topics.  Typing "d"
  returns here, "q" exits, "?" lists all INFO commands, "h"  gives a
  primer for first-timers, "mTexinfo<Return>" visits Texinfo topic,
  Or click mouse button 2 on a menu item or cross reference to select

If you hit the ? at any time, like it suggests than you will see all
of the available commands, including how to go up a node.  You can
also use normal emacs help mechanisms to find this stuff out.

If this is the worse complaint about info that people can come up
with, then damn, I'm impressed with it.
