How to Enable the Safari Address Bar

By Robert Kohnke

Safari is an Internet browser program for Apple computers. In an Internet browser, the address bar is the location in which you input the website address that you wish to visit. That being said, having an address bar missing or disabled can be quite problematic and limiting. Enabling it is a simple matter that can be accomplished through the view settings of the browser.

Step 1

Open up the Safari browser.

Step 2

Click "View" from the top toolbar of the window. You can also access the "View" menu by pressing "Alt" and "V" simultaneously.

Step 3

Select "Customize Toolbar" from the drop-down menu. You can either click on it with your mouse or scroll down to it with your keyboard arrow keys and press "Enter" to select it.

Step 4

Click and drag the "Address bar" to the toolbar of the window. The address bar will situate itself in the toolbar and it will be fully functional.
