    hi Gary, any idea why “Safari opens with…” shows me only two choices? They are: “All windows from last session” and “All non-private windows from last session”. I’m using v 14.0. Thanks

    nick: If you have “Close windows when quitting an app” turned off in System Preferences, General, then those two options no longer make sense, so they are taken away.

    Hi Gary, Do same instructions to set up “Safari opens with: All windows from last session” apply to MacBook Pro? MackBook Pro is my device. Have followed video instructions, tried w/ and w/o ticking “Close windows when quitting an app”. Made sure MacBook Pro is up to date. When I open, then close Safari, it opens to new page w/ prior open windows not present. Since I have it set to open with Favorites, that is what I see; prior windows are not seen as open! Help!

    Dolores: The Mac model doesn’t matter. Not sure why it isn’t working for you. Just check those settings and experiment.

    Hi Gary, Got it!
    “All windows from last session” works if you select “Quit Safari” from drop down window. Does not work if you click on red circle with x. Thanks.
