Change Safari’s Homepage On Your Mac

Would you like to change the initial page displayed when you open Safari on your Mac? If so, follow these instructions. Fortunately, Apple hasn’t changed how this is done in many versions of Safari. These instructions will certainly work on Safari versions 5-11 on Mac OS X version 10.6.x up to macOS High Sierra (aka OS X 10.13).

  • Open Safari, click on the Safari menu and select¬†Preferences
  • Click on the General icon on the top row of icons
  • Locate the section named Homepage and type in the address of the page that you want to be your homepage, such as www.nytimes.com,¬†www.google.com or www.duckduckgo.com (Note: you do not need to type the http:// at the front of address that you type, Safari will automatically add http://.)
