Safari Tricks for Mac
Below we will see the three simple yet very useful Safari tricks for Macbook.
Close all Safari for Mac tabs except the current one
Did you open a lot of tabs at the same time? But do you want to close the other tabs except for the one you are working on? Then there is a solution for it. There are three simple ways to close them at once, without having to go one by one:
- Go to the File menu and keep the option key (⌥) pressed, you will see that the action “Close other tabs” appears.
- Right click on the tab that you want to keep. An option that says “Close other tabs” will appear. Select it and the others will be closed.
- Keep the Mac option key pressed (⌥) and click on the close button of the tab that you want to keep. Those around will volatilize.
Recover your closed tabs in Safari
How many times have you closed a Safari tab on the Mac to realize you needed it a few seconds later? It has happened to me more times than I am ashamed to admit, thank god there are several ways to recover a closed tab:
- The manual way is to go to the menu History> Tabs recently closed. There you will find the ones that you closed recently, select them and they will open again.
- If you like keyboard shortcuts, this Safari trick will help you as much as it does me. Press uppercase + cmd + T and you will recover that tab that you have probably closed with cmd + W.
- As in iOS, you can hold the + button on the right side of the tabs to see which ones you closed recently. By selecting the one you will be able to recover it.
Move quickly between tabs
I recognize that this is the safari trick that I use the least, but that I can see it as a quite useful. There are two ways to move quickly between Mac tabs, these are:
- Move tab to tab by holding cmd + uppercase and use the arrow keys. At each touch of a side arrow, you will move to the next tab.
- Press cmd + 1 and you will be placed on the tab on the far left. With cmd + 9 you will go to the one on the right side. So, use the numbers so that you can go the tab you want.
