Hello,

If I'm browsing the net and click on a link, there is a good chance that an entirely new window will pop open and show the page that I just linked to.

Is there a way to set Safari to open that new page on a Tab in the same window?

Thanks! - Jeremy

Oh, and, aahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...yeah

When you click the link hold down the apple key (I can't find a automatic setting). Thanks I never knew Safari had tabs.

Safari Help:
Code:
To turn on tabbed browsing, choose Preferences from the Safari menu 
and click Tab. 
Select Enable Tabbed Browsing.

To open a link or bookmark in the bookmarks bar in a new tab, hold down 
the Command key and click the item, or hold down the Control key, click the 
item, and choose Open in New Tab from the shortcut menu.

To open a bookmark collection in the bookmarks bar or a folder of 
bookmarks in the Bookmarks Library in tabs, hold down the Control key, click 
the collection or folder, and choose Open in Tabs from the shortcut menu.

If you select the Auto-Click checkbox for a folder in the bookmarks bar, then 
you can open all the bookmarks in the folder in tabs by clicking the folder 
name in the bookmarks bar.

To open a webpage in a new tab, choose New Tab from the File menu and type the 
address for the page.

To close a tab, click the close button in the tab.

To quickly switch between tabs, press Command-Shift-[ and Command-Shift-].

To show a webpage that is in a tab and close all other tabs, hold down the 
Option key and click the close box in the tab you want to remain open.

When you click a link in a page you are viewing in a tab, the page opens in 
the current tab. Click the Back and Forward buttons in the address bar to 
scan pages you have opened in a tab.

If you choose a page from the History or Bookmarks menu, the page opens 
in the current tab.

a few helpful safari keyboard shortcuts off the thop of my head

command + t opens a new tab
command + shift + t opens new tab in front of current window
command + W to close a tab
command + up arrow goes to top of page
command + down arrow goes to bottom of page
space bar scrolls page down one page length

Command+Shift+Right Arrow Select next tab to the right. *Applies to the left arrow, too.*

If you have a 3 button mouse, the 3rd button is usually configured to be "Command+click". So 3rd click on a link and it will (if configured) open in a new tab.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

In other words, clicking on a link with the wheel instead of the left button will open a new tab instead of a new window. Thanks, I was getting annoyed by having to hold down the apple key to do that.

I'm on OS9 right now, so I can't test it out, but I believe that in Safari's preferences you can eliminate the ability of links to open new windows all together. That is, every link opens a new tab. Someone look around in Safari Preferences > Tabs and find out for sure.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

surfwax that option appears to only be if you are opening a link from an external application. for example if you were to click on a link sent by a friend it would open in a new tab in your current open browser. i cant find anything about always using tabs.

the command key will become second nature after a while along with many other shortcuts. i surf and do most other stuff on my computer with my left hand on the home row of the keyboard and right hand on the mouse

the app called "Safari Stand" has an option to open new windows in new tabs, quite useful:

Holding down the apple key when clicking on the link or clicking on the link with your mouse wheel doesn't work?

with gmail, you can not use the apple button and click on a link to open in a new tab, it just opens in a new window
