Step #4. By default, ‘Favorites’ has the tick. If you have folders within Favorites, they will be shown here. You can select them instead.

Step #5. When you select some other folder within Favorites, links within that folder will be shown in Safari whenever you open a new tab.

Now that you know this trick, you can put all news-related favorites under a folder and have that displayed in Safari’s default new tab view. With this, your access to favorites becomes quicker.

To switch back to a view where you see all favorites, you can select ‘Favorites’ from Settings Safari Favorites. Basically, this is switching back to the default setting.

If you have bookmarked a website but that isn’t showing up on the new tab page, it’s most likely because the bookmarked website is not within Favorites folder.

You can edit the bookmark and change its location to Favorites to have the bookmark show up in the new tab view.

That’s all for now!
