What is the option to navigate to previous page in current window like the back button in windows? (...and please don't say "cmd-arrow key", because it is not working in safari.) What is the option to navigate to the top of the page and end of the page?

Reply #2 Yents Dec 1, 2015 at 06:39 pm

Use command + left arrow to go back one page within the tab. Use command + right arrow to go to the next page within the tab. Hope this helped.

How do I get safari keybord yo unsplit.

Comment #13 by rsbrux Dec 9, 2014 at 03:43 am  Reply

Most of these don't work for me on an ipad 3 running iOS 7 with a Kensignton Bluetooth keyboard. For example, tab switching, reopen tab, hide window and new tab do not work. The only one I found that worked was close tab.

Reply #1 SaphrynShikaze Jan 27, 2015 at 09:22 pm

Hey rsbrux, These shortcuts are meant for the Safari Browser on OS X. I think the main reason for that is the fact that bluetooth keyboard makers are not regulated to include all of the required keys you would find on a Mac, such as [Option], [fn], [alt], etc. A great idea would be for Apple to launch an official "umbrella certification" program for companies like Logitech and others so they can comply with keyboard, AirPlay, DRM rules that apply to Apple products across the board. Tim Cook, get on it! lol.

Comment #12 by seonag Nov 11, 2014 at 06:34 am  Reply

Hi
Switching tabs works fine as described...but when I get to my yahoo email it doesn't. Once I reach the yahoo page, using command & shift & left or right arrow just results in navigating round the yahoo page, switching from one message to the next....Does anyone have any solution to this?????
Thanks!

Reply #1 SaphrynShikaze Jan 27, 2015 at 09:28 pm

Hey seonag. So I tried the whole Yahoo! Mail thing, and you're absolutely right. The solution: use [control]+[tab] to move to the next tab and [shift]+[control]+[tab] to move to the previous. I think these shortcuts work even better than [shift]+[⌘]+[left/right] for two reasons: 1) they're textbox proof, and 2) they're one handed operations ;). Hope that helps!

Comment #11 by Evan Oct 20, 2014 at 06:39 pm  Reply

how do i click on a link, on a web age, and open the link i clicked in another tab.

Example: on windows- you right click on the link and choose the option "open in new tab"

Reply #1 SaphrynShikaze Jan 27, 2015 at 09:30 pm

Hey Evan. It's [⌘]+click. To open in a new tab AND have the screen switch to the tab you opened, add shift, like this: [⌘]+[shift]+click. Have shortcutting ;).

cmd-arrow key

Comment #9 by Micke Jul 31, 2014 at 03:52 am  Reply

Switch tab is Command-Shift-Left Arrow/Command-Shift-Right Arrow for me. I'm on OS X 10.9.4.

VERY USEFUL ! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Comment #7 by eartherian Dec 9, 2013 at 08:05 am  Reply

In IE, Ctrl + Enter is used to add "www" as a prefix and ".com" as suffix.
What is the similar shortcut in Safari? Or in Mac OS X in general?

Comment #6 by mcanic Aug 28, 2013 at 02:58 am  Reply

"Hold option when clicking Back button" should be "Hold command when clicking Back button"

Comment #5 by Poster May 15, 2013 at 04:30 am  Reply

switch tabs with cmd+shift+[ ... that's bullshit, how would you do this ??? [ is alt+shift+5 , and that doesn't work with cmd+shift ...

Reply #1 Ben Feb 23, 2014 at 12:09 pm

Why are you swearing for?
I am very offended. x

Comment #4 by Tom Mar 14, 2013 at 03:53 pm  Reply

Is there a way to add "www." and ".com" to something in the address bar, like Command-Enter in FireFox? e.g. I type "yahoo" and Command-blah and it takes me to www.yahoo.com instead of doing a google search for yahoo.

Reply #1 MerleOne Jul 23, 2013 at 06:20 am

it seems that adding a / at the end, like in yahoo/ does the trick most of the times

Comment #3 by David Apr 2, 2012 at 04:24 pm  Reply

Hi there. I'm looking for a shortcut to hide the address bar in Safari. You have command + shift + down, but this does not work. Thanks.

Reply #1 Ashly Jan 29, 2013 at 11:11 pm

It's Option Command T

Comment #2 by Isaac Feb 16, 2012 at 09:05 am  Reply

Comment #1 by Scott Aug 11, 2011 at 07:38 am  Reply

Great site, btw!
