Are you curious about your browsing history on Safari? Whether you want to revisit a website you stumbled upon last week or need to recover a lost webpage, accessing your Safari history on Mac is quick and easy. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to view your browsing history on Safari using different methods.

Method 1: Using the Shortcut

If you are looking for a shortcut, here’s how you can quickly access your Safari history:

  • Step 1: Open Safari on your Mac.
  • Step 2: Press Command + Y simultaneously.
  • Step 3: A new window will appear displaying your entire browsing history.

This shortcut is handy when you want to take a quick glance at your recent browsing activity without navigating through menus or settings. However, if you prefer a more comprehensive view of your Safari history, proceed to the next method.

Method 2: Accessing History from the Menu

If you prefer using the menu options, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Launch Safari on your Mac.
  • Step 2: Click on the History tab in the top navigation bar.
  • Step 3: A drop-down menu will appear. Select Show All History.

This will open a new window displaying your complete browsing history organized by date. You can scroll through and find specific websites based on when you visited them.

Browsing History Window

Once you have accessed your Safari history using either of the methods mentioned above, you will be presented with a window that shows your browsing history. This window is divided into sections based on dates, making it easy to navigate through your past webpages. Each section displays the date and a list of websites you visited on that particular day.

From this window, you can:

  • Click on any website to open it in a new tab.
  • Delete individual entries by right-clicking on them and selecting Delete.
  • Search for specific websites using the search bar at the top right corner of the window.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut Command + F to quickly search for specific websites within your Safari history.


Browsing history is an essential part of any web browser, allowing users to revisit their favorite websites and recall previously viewed content. With Safari on Mac, accessing your browsing history is simple and efficient. Whether you prefer shortcuts or menu options, you can quickly view and manage your Safari history with ease.
