Traditionally, a homepage is the first website your browser loads when you start it. But by default, Safari on Mac opens up a window of Favorites instead. If you’d like Safari to start with a website of your choice, follow these simple steps.
First, open the Safari web browser by clicking its icon in the dock, by using Spotlight Search, or by selecting it from the macOS Applications folder. From there, navigate to the page you’d like to use as your home page. It can be any website you want.
In the menu bar at the top of the screen, select Safari > Preferences.
In Preferences > General, click the “Set to Current Page” button. This changes your home page to the current website Safari has open.
After clicking the button, the address in the “Homepage” field will change to the address of the current page.
Next, we’ll make it so you see your home page when you open Safari. In Preferences > General, click the drop-down menu beside the “New Windows Open With” listing.
In the drop-down menu, select the “Homepage” option.
If desired, you can repeat the same step with the “New Tabs Open With” option. In that case, every time you open a new tab, you’ll see your home page.
