Speaking of browser bookmarks, the nearest would be bookmarks menu attached to our browsers. Without accessing external sites for extracting out bookmarks, links to favorite sites can be obtained right from web browser bookmarks menu.
However, blazing fast access speed to bookmarked sites won’t be achieved without bits of tweaking to browser settings and system preferences. The easiest tweak made to increase speed won’t be far away from assigning new keyboard shortcuts.
Let’s proceed on and get to step-by-step guide to adding new shortcut to browser bookmarks…
Allocation of Shortcuts
One of the advantages in using Mac is the ability to either customize every bit of available shortcuts or assign new shortcuts to available features via System Preferences.
Talking about adding new shortcuts to browser bookmarks, these steps work well for all kind of browsers. But we will take Safari Web Browser as example.
Update : Apparently, this doesn’t work on Firefox 3. Still can’t figure out the solution.
- Go to System Preferences → Keyboard & Mouse → Keyboard Shortcuts
- Click on [+] button and additional menu will be pulled down
- Choose Safari as Application with your bookmarks name (e.g. Gorgeous Apple Wallpapers) filled into field labelled Menu Title
- Now assign new Keyboard Shortcut for previously saved bookmark
- Upon adding that new shortcut, the change in menubar display should be spotted
