How to manage Bookmarks in Apple Safari

Re-order or delete your saved pages

Bookmarks are a great tool for web users. By simply pressing the Control and D or pressing the '+' icon next to the URL bar when visiting a page in Apple's Safari, web users can save a site so they can access it at the click of a button rather than trawling through hundreds of pages. But this can result in a massive number of tabs on the Bookmarks Bar, which can look cramped. However, you can manage your bookmarks by adding folders and placing the bookmarks in these folders, or re-arranging the order bookmarks appear in and even delete bookmarks. We've already shown you how to manage Bookmarks in Firefox 5, Internet Explorer 9 and Google Chrome, but it's a slightly different process for Apple Safari. Here's how.

Step one
To re-order any of the Bookmark tabs in the Bookmarks bar, which is located below the URL bar, click on the bookmark and drag it to the new position.

Step two
Alternatively, to create a folder to store specific bookmarks in, right click on an empty space on the Bookmarks Bar and then select New folder. You'll be required to enter a name for the folder. Then press OK. The folder will appear on your Bookmarks bar. You can add bookmarks to it by simply dragging and dropping them onto the folder, or you change where the folder appears in the Bookmark list the same way as described in step one.

Step three
To delete a bookmark, right click on the bookmark and then select Delete. The bookmark will be removed.
