See All Tabs - MacBook Pro

Postby RideForever » Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:31 am

On an iPad to see all Tabs open in Safari, one pinches two fingers on the screen. Is there a command to obtain the same on an MBPro?

You can scroll the tabs, but there’s no command I know of to see all tabs. It’s the Mac’s way of telling you you have (way) too many tabs open.

On the Mac, if you click on the two overlapping squares in the top right corner of Safari you get the same results as pinching in iOS.

Well, first of all ... you shouldn't have so many tabs open that you can't see them all! This can severely impact the performance of Safari (as it can do on iOS) when you have a lot of tabs open, since they are all refreshing all the time (due to ads or animated elements, etc).

But while you can't get a view of all tabs open (behind what the screen can show), you can "scroll" through the open tabs using two fingers going right-to-left on a trackpad or magic mouse to find the one you want.
