Bookmark webpages that you want to revisit in Safari on Mac
If you are an active Internet user, you probably have many online accounts, sites, and web pages that you visit regularly. Constantly using Google to search for the desired web page or manually entering the domain name is at least inconvenient.
That is why it is much more convenient to use bookmarks that you can save in any browser you use. They are great tools that provide quick access to any information that is important to you, i.e. websites, online documents, web pages, and more.
You can save anything you like, such as news sites, online shops, social platforms, recipe websites, and more. Thus, each user needs to understand how to manage saved web resources. If you just add all the web resources in a row to your favorites, then in the end you will get a huge list of bookmarks.
We will tell you all about how you can manage your favorites if you own a MacBook and also use the built-in browser.

How to add a web resource to favorites?
If you come across a web resource that you would like to save so that you can quickly find it at any time, then you can create a bookmark. You have several options on how you can do this. The first way is that you can simply click on the relevant section, and then click “Add”. In addition, you can select the “Share” function, and then you can add it to the whole list.
Right after that, you will see your options for bookmarking. You can just add a web resource to the big list of all others. Also, if you have previously created special folders and categorized web resources, you can choose a place to save them. For convenience, you can change the name of this web resource, and you can also add a description. However, this opportunity is rarely used by anyone, since the name makes it clear what kind of web resource it is.
