How to Open Up Multiple Web Pages on a Mac

Updated April 17, 2017

Open multiple Web pages simultaneously on a Mac using the included Safari Web browser. Using Safari, you can have several pages open in different windows or have several pages open in multiple tabs, in one window. If you need to view two or more Web pages side by side, choose the multiple windows option. Working with the tabs system allows you to view only one web page at a time.

Open Safari and browse to a Web page.

Resize the application window by clicking on the triangular lines in the bottom right-hand corner of the window and dragging the window to the size you want.

Click "File" and then "New Window" for each additional window you need. Browse to a Web page in each one, and resize each window so you can see them all on the screen.

Open Safari and browse to a Web page.

Click "File" and then "New Tab." A new Web page opens, and you will see grey tabs representing open Web pages at the top of the window.

Switch pages by clicking on the tabs.

Close a tab by hovering over it with the mouse and clicking on the "X" that appears.
