Safari is getting some of the more visible updates in MacOS Monterey that will probably make you use bookmarks more. There are a few tricks out there that can help make Safari bookmarking a key, organized research tool, rather than being left in the dust.

Click and hold the site title under the Safari address/search bar drag the site title to the far left when the wide title TAB becomes a small icon and when big let go when you open the site in one of the multiple tabs, this is the easiest, But even if you only open the Safari window for one site, the same process will work. When you drag it far enough, it seems visually faster.

How to launch Safari with the Start Page and choose Safari Preferred, usually under New Tabs Open With, select Start Page again and from now on, Simply open a new Safari window or TAB to display the start page. In other options, such as privacy reports, you get a list of bookmarks.

This is actually a grid view of your favorites’ ICONS. You can drag to reorder any bookmarks or bookmarks folder you can see.

How to add a bookmark on any site, press command-d by selecting the location to add this page to, organize a new bookmark immediately (optional) type the name of the bookmark or optionally, write a description for it click add please note that nothing prevents you from repeating this step. Add the same site to many different folders (if you have them and they are useful).

It would be nice if you could create folders from the Add Bookmarks menu or button, but you must use a separate Add Bookmarks folder. Or at least if you’re just beginning to add a single bookmark.

When you want to bookmark all open tabs, you need to create a folder.

How do I add bookmarks folder to start with a site

When Safari opens its Bookmarks sidebar, an untitled folder will now appear at the bottom. Right click on the untitled folder and name it. This just opens a sidebar and pops up an unnamed folder, which is a bit ugly. If you create a folder anywhere else on your Mac, it will be called the Untitled Folder, but it will be highlighted for you to rename. Not here.

How do I bookmark multiple tabs at once and create a new folder

Open a new Safari window and then open a new TAB for each site you want to navigate to the sites in each TAB from the Bookmarks menu, select Add Bookmarks for This 3 Tabs… , or however many in the dialog box that appears, click Add the Booktag folder to… Type the name of the folder and click Add This time there is no option to describe the content you want to bookmark. You can’t add each site to the top of your bookmark. These tabs are put together in a new folder, and you just have to decide where to go.

It does make sense to group all the tabs you bookmarked into the same folder. Except that there’s currently no way to say in Safari that you want to have all of these tabs open at the same time.

So you have to open them separately, but you can’t save them separately.

This is true in Safari, but other applications can use these bookmarks. Safari bookmarks don’t have to exist only in the browser. For example, you can add bookmarks to the Dock.

Click on Safari’s address/search bar until you see the name of the site and its icon on the left. Click on the icon and drag it to the far right of the Dock. Most of the Dock is occupied by the application. But there’s a thin vertical bar on the far right. From there to the wastepaper basket at the far right edge of the Dock, you can see a number of different items and drag more or less anything you like there. However, having a single site take up space on the Dock is not very efficient. So, instead, create a folder on your desktop and drag a number of Safari sites into it.

Then drag the folder to the right of the Dock. Now, when you click the folder icon, it spreads out to show you the bookmarks in it.

Since you can click into the bookmarks folder, it’s disappointing that you can’t double-click to launch Safari with a TAB for each bookmark.

However, you can use Apple’s AppleScript or Automator automation to process the bookmark list and open them one by one. Again, you can do the same for third-party applications, such as Keyboard Maestro.

In the future, you’ll be able to use it on MacOS Monterey!
