In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding Google to your favorites on a Mac. Adding a website to your favorites allows you to access it quickly and easily whenever you want. Whether you use Google for search, email, or other services, having it readily available in your favorites can save you time and effort.

Step 1: Launch Safari
To begin, open the Safari browser on your Mac. You can find it in the Applications folder or by searching for it using Spotlight.

Step 2: Navigate to Google
Once Safari is open, type “” into the address bar at the top of the window and press Enter. This will take you to the Google homepage.

Step 3: Add Google to Favorites
To add Google to your favorites, click on the “Bookmarks” option in the menu bar at the top of the screen. From the drop-down menu, select “Add Bookmark”. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut “Command + D”.

Step 4: Choose a Location
A dialog box will appear asking you to choose where you want to save your bookmark. You can select an existing folder or create a new one by clicking on the “New Folder” button. For now, let’s save it in the default location – Bookmarks Menu.

Step 5: Edit Bookmark Details (Optional)
If desired, you can edit the name of the bookmark by clicking on its current name and typing a new one. For example, you could change it to “Google Search”. This step is not necessary but can help differentiate between bookmarks if you have multiple ones.

Step 6: Save Your Bookmark
Once you have chosen a location and edited any details (if needed), click on the “Add” button. Congratulations! You have successfully added Google to your favorites on your Mac.

Now, whenever you want to access Google quickly, you can simply click on the “Bookmarks” option in the menu bar and select “Google Search” (or whatever name you gave it). You can also use the keyboard shortcut “Command + Option + B” to open the bookmarks sidebar and access Google from there.

Additional Tips:
– To organize your bookmarks further, you can create folders within folders. Right-click on a folder and select “New Folder” to create a subfolder.

– If you frequently use Google, you might find it more convenient to set it as your homepage. To do this, go to Safari Preferences (Command + comma), select the “General” tab, and enter “” in the Homepage field.
