Safari History on the Mac

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi there,

Be forewarned, this may be stupidity on my part. However, for the life of me I can't seem to use Safari browsing history correctly. I know Command Y brings it up. But I can't seem to open a page from it, either from the website title column or the address column. They both appear as editable text boxes. Return does nothing, VO Spacebar just says "confirm", tabbing doesn't help, Command O tries to open it as a file instead of a webpage.

What simple keystroke am I missing?

Thanks a lot,

I don't like the screen that comes up when you use Command Y. I usually go to the history menu and look through that. Pressing VO space or enter on a menu item takes you to the page.

Sometimes I have to search for an item in the history page. The only solution works is on either column use VO+Shift+M to bring up the shortcut menu and select "Open in New Tab".
