Enter search terms into the Search Bar in Safari.

Enter search terms into the Search Bar in Safari.

If you want to search the web for something you’ll probably turn to Google. You don’t need to click your Bookmark for Google and wait for it to load (or, even worse, type in Google’s address and wait). Safari, like many modern browsers, has a dedicated Google Search field.

Click the thumbnails for larger versions.

Click on the magnifying glass to call up recent searches.

At the top of the Safari window, to the right of the Address Bar, is a Google search area. Type your search terms into that field and press Return.

Click the magnifying glass icon in the Google search field to see a list of recent searches. Select a search from that list to repeat it.

Resize the search and address fields.

Resize the search and address fields.

If you find the Address Bar or the Google search area too long or short you can drag the dot between them to the right or left in order to resize them.

And if you’ve searched and then followed links from the page of results notice how a small white curly arrow appears in an orange circle at the right hand end of the search field. Click that arrow to quickly snap back to the page of search results.

Click the orange arrow to snap back to search results.

To quickly erase the search terms in the search field click the small white x in the grey circle at the right hand end of the search field.

    Hi Victor,

    if you’d like Safari to do that you’ll need to send that feature request directly to Apple.

    Personally, I’d find it annoying to have other people’s searches popping up in my Safari….

    Please explain why searches are not being populated automatically as they do in a google toolbar in internet explorer? I am talking about populating common search terms that I people typed not the ones I typed before.

    Hmmm. Mine takes me to Google.com.

    I suggest you try the Apple support forums for help.

    Can you explain why the Google search area on my Safari takes me to a Russian version of Google. Is there some way I can reset it to English?

    Thanks.
