How to Open New Tab in Safari Mac?
Just like launching a new window, you can also open new tabs within the browser window. Each browsing tab will work independently of each other.
Here are the steps to open a new tab within the safari browser on macOS:
- Launch the Safari browser on the computer.
- From the menu bar select the File menu.
- Choose New Tab from the menu options.
This will open a new tab within the same browsing window on the Safari browser. You can also open the new tab within the same browsing window by hitting on the command.
You can open unlimited browser tabs until your Mac machine exhaust memory. If you notice any lag, then close the windows that are no longer needed. However, the MacOS is smart enough to understand the old windows and tab that hogging memory.
Other Tab Tricks For Your Mac
- To show all tabs in a window, click View in the menu bar and choose Show All Tabs.
- To convert all Safari windows to tabs in one window: Choose Window and Merge All Windows.
Method 3: The Drag and Release!
Press and hold a link, and the preview will pop up — but don’t let go yet! Start dragging your finger towards the tab bar and release once the green “+” pops up.
Open a page in a new tab from the bookmarks sidebar
In the Safari app on your Mac, do any of the following:
Control-click a bookmark, then choose Open in New Tab from the shortcut menu.
Control-click a bookmarks folder, then choose Open in New Tabs.
Each bookmark in the folder opens in a new tab.
To open the bookmarks sidebar, click the Sidebar button in the toolbar, then click Bookmarks.
Automatically open pages in tabs
In the Safari app on your Mac, choose Safari > Preferences, then click Tabs.
Click the “Open pages in tabs instead of windows” pop-up menu, then choose an option:
Never: Links designed to open in new windows open in new windows.
Automatically: Links designed to open in new windows open in new tabs.
Always: All links designed to open in new windows open in new tabs, including links designed to open in specially formatted separate windows.
New tab in Safari on Mac
You have different options in Safari on Mac than you do on iOS. You can control links in opening in new tabs instead of new windows automatically and use a shortcut to immediately open links in new tabs.
Open Safari and click Safari > Preferences from the menu bar. Select Tabs at the top. Then configure these options.
Open pages in tabs instead of windows: Select either Automatically or Always from the drop-down. The difference between these is that Automatically will open the link in a new tab unless that link is designed for a specific format. Always will open it in a new tab regardless.
Command-click opens a link in a new tab: If you check this box, you can hold your Command key, click the link, and the page will open in a new tab.
When a new tab or window opens make it active: Check this box only if you want to immediately switch to the new tab when it opens. If you prefer to leave it open in the background, don’t check the box.
Along with the above adjustments, you can always open a link in a new tab with a right-click. Right-click the link and select Open Link in New Tab.

If you tend to keep a lot of tabs open, you’ll likely have better luck tapping the tabs icon to navigate your tabs in the new grid view. Want to learn more iOS 15 tips and tricks?
