Accessing Safari History
Are you trying to find a website you visited recently but can’t remember the exact URL? Or maybe you want to see a list of all the sites you’ve been to in the past. Whatever the reason, accessing your Safari history is easy and convenient.
Current Window or Tab
If you want to see the websites you’ve visited in the current window or tab, there are a few different ways to do it. One option is to click the back button located in the toolbar. This will take you to the previous website you were on. If you want to go forward again, you can click the forward button located next to the back button.
Another option is to use the Touch Bar if you have a MacBook Pro. The Touch Bar has a back and forward button which you can use to navigate through your history.
To see a longer list of recently visited websites, you can click the History menu. This will give you a list of the websites you’ve visited in the last few days. You can click on any of the websites listed to quickly navigate to them.
Full Browsing History
If you want to see all the websites you’ve visited, you can choose History > Show All History. This will open a new window that shows you a list of all the websites you’ve visited, organized by date. You can use the search bar to find a specific website or you can scroll through the list to find what you’re looking for.
Let’s say you were shopping online and found a great pair of shoes, but you can’t remember the name of the store or the URL. By accessing your Safari history, you can easily find the website you were on and make your purchase.
Another example: You were doing research for a school project and found a lot of great information, but you can’t remember where you found it. By looking at your Safari history, you can quickly find the website and get back to your research.
