The internet is a huge space with an almost infinite number of great websites and fascinating content. When you find something interesting online that you want to return to later, the easiest approach to ensure you remember it is to save it as a bookmark in your browser.
Bookmarking is a quick and easy approach to creating your personal digital universe. People bookmark sites that they visit for information, news, or entertainment. You won't have to memorize URLs and website names, much less even type a complex link into your browser's address bar.
Mac web browsers enable you to save bookmarks for easy access to websites. Here's how to create a bookmark in Safari: In Safari, navigate to the website you wish to bookmark. To bookmark many websites at once, go to the "File" menu and pick "New Tab." In the new tab, you can then go to another website and bookmark it. To bookmark a site, press the "+" button to the left of the URL in the address bar. To bookmark a set of tabs, pick "Add Bookmarks for These Tabs" from the "Bookmarks" menu. Choose "Bookmarks Bar" from the "Add This Page To" drop-down box to insert the bookmark below the address bar. Tap "Bookmarks Menu" to add the bookmark to the list that displays when you select "Bookmarks" from the toolbar menu in Safari. Give the bookmarked website or set of tabs a name. To make a new bookmark, tap "Add."
Bookmark folders are excellent for managing your bookmarks. The good thing about folders is that you can name, arrange, and organize them in any way you like. You could also make subfolders. A folder can be created in the Bookmarks Sidebar or the Bookmarks Editor. To access the Editor, navigate to Bookmarks > Edit Bookmarks.
To create a folder:
Here are the steps to create a subfolder.
You can edit your bookmarks in the Bookmarks Sidebar or the Bookmarks Editor. The Bookmarks Editor has the advantage of giving you a bit more area to work with. However, you have the same editing choices in any case. Select a bookmark, folder, or subfolder by right-clicking it. The bookmark or folder can then be renamed, copied, or deleted. You can also make specific changes to each bookmark like editing the URL.
Safari Bookmarks save the names as the title of a webpage or website by default. That is, if a website has a lengthy title, the bookmark name will be similarly lengthy. When using the Bookmarks menu, this isn't a big deal, but if you're using the Safari Favorites Bar, lengthy names are shortened that they sometimes don't make sense, so renaming them is a good idea.
There are two ways to rename a bookmark or folder, either to do it on the Bookmarks Editor or using the Favorites bar.
To rename in the Bookmarks editor:
Instead of using the Bookmark Editor to rename a bookmark, you can quickly do it in Safari with the use of a click-trick within Safari's Favorites bar:
Chrome is the world's biggest web browser by far. It's robust, feature-rich, and has a comprehensive network of extensions. Chrome's bookmark management is also a little more sophisticated. The browser has a Bookmark Manager, where you could search for bookmarks, create folders, add or delete bookmarks, and so on.
Here's how to delete bookmarks in Chrome on a MAC computer:
Google Chrome bookmarks are simple to access and organize from inside the browser. It merely takes a few taps of your mouse to add, remove, and rename bookmarks. However, if you need to move bookmarks to a different browser, you may have to manually find your bookmarks file.
Under macOS, Google Chrome keeps its bookmarks in the "Application Support" directory. This directory may be found by searching for "Terminal." In macOS, you should configure your file browser to see hidden folders. Enter the following command line: /Users/your username>/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default. When you press the Enter key, the Finder will go to the folder containing your bookmarks.
Even if the folder is hidden, you can still access it using the Finder:
Bookmarks enable internet users to save time and be more efficient by allowing you to keep track of your favorite websites. You could bookmark any website URL so you can return to it conveniently the next time you read articles, research information, stream movies, play music, or log in to your various online accounts. The best part of all, you can create folders to organize and easily add, edit or remove bookmarks from your Mac browser.
