I can see the option to Open Image in New Tab in the context menu whenever I right click on any image in Safari.

Context Menu option: <code>Open Image in New Tab</code>

I tried to assign an App Shortcut in my MacOS by:

  1. Going to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts

  2. Clicking on the + icon

  3. Selecting

    • Application: Safari
    • Menu Title: Open Image in New Tab
    • Keyboard Shortcut: ⌘B

I tried assigning some other keyboard shortcuts too in place of ⌘B but it just does not seem to work in Safari. Is there any solution?

    Open Image in New Tab is a context menu command, not a Safari menu bar command, and why you cannot assign it a keyboard shortcut in the manner in which you tried. Only an app's menu bar command can be assigned a keyboard shortcut in that manner. I do not know of a way to add a keyboard shortcut to a command that is only a context menu command. You can however ⌘-click* an image to open it in a new tab. – user3439894 Sep 2 '19 at 15:41
  • @user3439894 I wanted to know if there is a shortcut for Open Image in New Tab in the context menu which works even if the image is not a link unlike ⌘-click which only works if it is a link. – Kewal Shah Sep 3 '19 at 13:34
