How to customise the browser toolbar in Safari

Ensure the commands you use are displayed

The toolbars at the top of your web browser allow you to access actions such as reloading a page, stopping a webpage from loading or even printing a page. It is relatively easy to customise these toolbars to ensure actions you use frequently are displayed and those that you don't often use are removed. We've already shown you how to customise the toolbars in Firefox and Internet Explorer but here's how to implement it in Safari.

Step one
Open Safari, and then using the icon that looks like a cog, open the settings menu and select Customize toolbar.

Step two
Just like in Firefox, a window will pop-up with icons depicting various actions. Simply drag and drop the icons you require onto the toolbar. You can re-arrange them by dragging them to the new position you want them in, while you can arse icons by simply dragging them from the toolbar to the pop-up window. When you're finished, press Done.
