Mac, Tutorials

Are you tired of searching for your favorite websites every time you want to visit them? Well, worry no more!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of favoriting a website on your Mac, so you can easily access it whenever you want. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open Safari

If you’re using a Mac, chances are that you’re already familiar with Safari – the default web browser. To favorite a website, first, open Safari by clicking on its icon in the dock or by searching for it in Spotlight.

Step 2: Visit the Website

Once Safari is open, visit the website that you want to add to your favorites. You can either type the URL directly into the address bar or search for it using a search engine like Google.

Step 3: Click on the Share Button

Now that you have your desired website open, look for the share button in Safari’s toolbar. The share button is represented by a square with an arrow pointing upward. Click on it to reveal a drop-down menu.

Step 4: Select ‘Add Bookmark’

In the drop-down menu, select ‘Add Bookmark’ from the list of options. You can also use the shortcut ‘Command + D’ on your keyboard to quickly add a bookmark.


If you want to organize your bookmarks into folders or change their names, click on ‘Show in Favorites’ or ‘Edit Address and Name’ respectively. This will allow you to customize your bookmarks according to your preferences.

Step 5: Choose Favorite Folder

A pop-up window will appear asking you where you would like to save this bookmark. By default, the bookmark will be saved in the ‘Favorites’ folder. If you want to save it in a different folder, select that folder from the drop-down menu.

Step 6: Add Description (Optional)

If you want to add a description to your bookmark, you can do so by filling in the ‘Description’ field in the pop-up window. This is particularly useful when you have multiple bookmarks and want to remember the purpose of each one.

Step 7: Click ‘Add’

Finally, click on the ‘Add’ button to save your bookmark. You will see a confirmation message letting you know that the bookmark has been successfully added.

Step 8: Access Your Favorite Website

To access your favorite website at any time, simply open Safari and look for the ‘Favorites’ tab in the bookmarks bar. Click on it, and you will see a list of all your favorite websites. Click on any website from the list to instantly navigate to it.


If you don’t see the bookmarks bar in Safari, go to ‘View’ in the menu bar and make sure that ‘Show Favorites Bar’ is checked.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to favorite a website on your Mac using Safari. Now you can easily access your favorite websites with just a few clicks!

Remember, organizing your bookmarks can save you time and make browsing more efficient. So go ahead and start adding all your favorite websites to your bookmarks!
