How to open and jump to tabs in the background in Safari on Mac

Often, when using Safari on Mac, I open tabs in the background so I don’t lose my current one. In this case, each time you have to additionally switch to the newly opened tab. Can the browser be configured to go directly to the open background tab ?

In the standard macOS browser, there are three ways to open a link in a new tab at once. The first two only allow you to open a tab, while the third opens a page in the background and goes straight to it.

1. Call the context menu of the link and select the Open link in new tab item .

2. Hold down the Command key and just click on the link.

3. Hold down the Command + Shift key combination and click on the link.

It is the last keyboard shortcut, together with clicking on the link, that allows you to open it in a new tab and go directly to it. It is not always convenient to carry out such an action; it can be reconfigured.

To do this, select Safari – Preferences in the browser menu bar and go to the Tabs section .

Here we activate the setting When opening a new tab or window, select them . After activating it, the above methods of opening a tab start to work in the opposite way.

Opening a tab via the context menu and holding down the Command key will immediately open the tab and switch to it, and opening a tab holding down Command + Shift will simply open the link in the background.

Keep in mind that a background tab opened with the Command key can be quickly closed with the swipe back gesture on the Magic Mouse or trackpad, which is much faster than moving the cursor to a small cross.
