How to show full website address in address bar on Safari browser on Mac OS X






Apple introduced shortened version of website address showing only the domain name on Safari address field in a recent update of Safari. However, many times it is more fruitful for an end user to see the entire address rather than just the name of the top level domain. To make things intuitive, Apple provided a setting in Safari browser which can be configured to either show a full address or a shortened one. Today we are listing the steps how you can configure the browser to show full addresses instead of just the top level domains.

Go to Safari browser on your Mac. Go to a website, say google.co.in and search for something like 'apple'.
