If you watch the File menu, you can see ⌘W changes depending on the number of open tabs. If there are multiple, it's "Close Tab", if there is one (not counting the pinned), it's "Close Window". There is a workaround! You can overwrite ⌘W to always execute "Close Tab". Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts Add a Shortcut for the ...

For tabs to work in all situations, you need to enable them in System Preferences->Dock (set the appropriate option to "always"). Afterwards, you can (in Mail) select "File -- New window" or press Opt-Cmd-N to create a new tab.

You need to drag a tab - Safari won't let you drag an entire window into another one. You can hit ⌘T to create a new empty tab (thus making the tab interface visible), then drag your original tab to the other window.

Go to Window → Merge All Windows. In Safari, this merges other windows into the currently active window. In Finder, this merges the current windows into other window. Alternatively, you can show the tab bar with View → Show Tab Bar. This lets you drag the tab when only one tab in a window is open.

Assuming you don't require them to open literally simultaneously, but simply rapidly, this is quite doable. First, add the iCloud Tabs icon () to your Safari toolbar, if it isn't there already. To do this, right-click the toolbar, select "Customize Toolbar…", and drag the icon to where you want it. Once the icon is in your toolbar, click it. A list of tabs ...

The answer is no, Safari does not provide any built-in functionality or shortcut (to the non-existing functionality) to restore the last closed tab. The only functionality that Safari currently offers is: Reopen last closed window Undo Close Tab (as part of the Undo event chain) The first does just that, re-opens the last closed window, including all the ...

The middle click to close tab functionality isn't really a common OS X UI pattern. The standard keyboard shortcut for closing a tab is command ⌘W (which will also close non-tabbed windows, or windows with only one open tab). If you really want a Magic Trackpad gesture for closing tabs, you could use BetterTouchTool to map a gesture to ⌘W, but it would still ...

Go to Preferences → Tabs and enable When a new tab or window opens, make it active. Enabling this option switches the shift modifier to disabling this functionality rather than enabling it.

Here is an AppleScript that will get the name of all Tabs in all Safari windows and show them in an unsaved TextEdit document.

Or as an App and it can be placed on the Dock. tell application "Safari" set windowCount ...

This extension: http://nickvdp.com/tablist/ does allow global search and is awesome. It would also be good if it included iCloud tabs. I would love it more if it could be invoked from the keyboard or integrated into Spotlight but it's still incredible. The way it just brings that tab+window directly to the front is beautiful.

Yes! You can do one of the following: right-click on the tab you want to keep and select the Close Other Tabs option, or make sure you’re on the tab you want and then use the optioncommandW keyboard shortcut (or, if you prefer using the mouse, hold down the option key and navigate to File > Close Other Tabs). NOTE: - This closes all other tabs in the same ...

I don't believe there is a list of tabs available, however, there is a tab overview in Safari if you click View > Show All Tabs The keyboard shortcut is Shift+Command+\ Which will show you all of your tabs, grouped by which website they are. Or if you have pinch-to-zoom support, you can zoom out and it will automatically jump into this view.

A Finder tab doesn't display the folder icon, just the folder name. However, you can use a workaround (which may be helpful in a specific and limited use case). You can add an Emoji character as part of, or at the beginning of the folder name to have it visually distinguished and easily identifiable. Here I have three folders with similar names, that I ...

With the new macOS Sierra, it is possible to use the keyboard shortcut ⌘⇧T to reopen the last closed tab – à la Chrome and other browsers. The previous shortcut, ⌘Z, allowed you to reopen closed tabs, but was more of a "general purpose" button which allowed you to reopen closed tabs, but also to undo other actions. The new shortcut is specifically meant to ...

In the most recent version of Google Chrome (currently on version 55.0.2883.79) has actually gone a long way to resolving this problem. There is now a Windows-like button to the right of the tabs (and the new tab button) that now displays a scrolling page of tab thumbnails. Tapping that button results in a page of thumbnails representing the open tabs (you ...

One way to navigate a lot of tabs with Chrome on the iPad would be to somehow get a list of them out of the device, since this would then allow you to finally close them and start over. Using the list, preferably a clickable webpage, you'd be able to refer to the sites you want and click to re-open them as needed. The problem then becomes that with Chrome/...
