    It means to reverse a decision and revert to a prior choice. I decided to use bing, but after trying it I switched back to google.

    It has several meanings, always related to context. Please always give us full sentences to work with. Also, please make sure you have looked up definitions online or in a phrasal verb list before posting. We are not a replacement for a dictionary.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please look at the full sentences as follow:
    "She slumped back down on the sofa, groped for the controls, and switched back to Libby's DVD."

    It appears that she had been doing something else when she used the remote control to return to Libby's DVD.
