Forum Question: How Do I Display the Actual Location Of Items Found Using Search Bookmarks?

I am using Safari Version 10.0.3 (11602. I can’t find a particular bookmark by going through all my bookmarks individually. When I use “Search Bookmarks” it displays the one I am looking for but I can’t figure out where it is in my Bookmarks sidebar.

    Go to Bookmarks, Edit Bookmarks. Then use the special search field there at the upper right (not the main Safari address/search field). When you find your bookmark that way, it shows you the “parent folder” which can help you find it.

    It displays the Website, Parent, and Address of the Website. I am trying to find the location of the bookmark itself. Thanks for your patience.

    That’s all there is to a bookmark: the name and web address. Not sure what else you are looking for. Do you mean where it is stored on your Mac? It is in a list inside a preferences file, and synced with iCloud too, so you don’t want to mess with it. Only add, edit or delete through the Safari bookmarks interface.

    What an incredibly useful tip! Solves what´s often bothered/puzzled me about Bookmarks in Safari. Sometimes one can´t find the woods for all the trees… Thanks a lot, Gary, and keep up your excellent work!!
