    In addition to these tricks with tabs, you can also open a bunch of bookmarks in tabs all at once by either Control-clicking on a folder of bookmarks in your bookmarks list or by checking off the box “Auto Click” of a folder of bookmarks that are located in your bookmarks bar. If you create a folder of bookmarks and put them in your bookmarks bar folder in Bookmarks, they create a drop-down menu of bookmarks, but check that box and they will all open at once tabs, one for each bookmark,

    Great tips as usual Gary – thanks. I found (by accident) another way to ‘show all tabs’. Zooming out using a pinch on a trackpad brings up the tabs you have open and then just swipe left or right to choose with zoom pinch/spacebar/enter etc

    Gary, Great tutorial. Can you suggest why I would want to open a URL in another window? What is the practical purpose? I do often open a URL in a new tab, so I can leave the original URL active and come back to it. I just didn’t see an advantage to opening the URL in a new window.

      Could be for grouping. For instance, you could have several tabs open n one window to research one subject, then open a new window to do something else. Also, it is handy to look at two web sites side-by-side, to compare them or to use them together, like a map on the left and a site of restaurant reviews on the right.
