Safari 6 (OS X Mountain Lion): Save webpages to your Reading List

Save webpages to your Reading List in Safari

If you come across a webpage or link that you want to read later, you can add it to the Reading List in Safari. If you’re signed in to iCloud, it keeps your Reading List the same on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The Safari service (or Bookmarks service on some devices) must be turned on in iCloud preferences.

Add a page to your Reading List

  1. In Safari, open the webpage you want to add to your Reading List.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On a Mac with OS X Mountain Lion, click the Share button and choose ”Add to Reading List.”

      “Share” button

    • On a Mac with OS X Lion, choose Bookmarks > ”Add to Reading List.”

To quickly add a link to your Reading List, Shift-click a link on a webpage. You can use this shortcut with the Reading List sidebar open or closed.

View your Reading List

You can view pages on your Reading List at any time. You don’t have to be connected to the Internet.

  • To open and close your Reading List, click this icon in the Safari bookmarks bar:

    Reading List icon

  • To switch between viewing all webpages and viewing only the webpages you haven’t yet read, click the All and Unread buttons.

On a webpage with an article, you can read without distractions by using Reader. Click Reader at the right end of the address and search field to see the entire article without ads or clutter. Reader is available only if Safari detects an article.

Remove a page from your Reading List

  • To remove an article from your Reading List, put the pointer over the article. When you see a Remove button (x), click it.
  • To remove all articles, click the Clear All button.
