Searching with Safari on thE mac

Forum
macOS & Mac Apps

Hey guys, I've just got started with my first Mac, and I'm pretty confident so far. The only thing I can't figure out is how to search using safari. I am able to find and interact with the text field in the tool bar to enter a website name, and once I enter my search term, I press the return key. The problem is that upon searching, my device only seems to give me one result when I type in a website, which is unhelpful if that result is not what I'm looking for, and nothing when I input things like search keywords or questions. So, in summary, I need help in searching safari, so that I ten browse a variety of results to enable me to find what I'm looking for, and to be able to use search keywords if I don't know the address of a site. I'm sure there's something simple I'm just not getting. I'm using a Macbook Pro 13, with OS 10 High Sierra. Thanks in advance for all of your help.

By default, Safari is configured to use Google. When you perform a search, I recommend the following steps:

1. Press CMD+l to move the cursor into the address bar and type your keywords.

2. Press enter and wait for the page to load.

3. Once the page is finished loading, navigate by headings and you should be able to interact with the search results.
