Showing the Full URL in Safari

If You noticed, the newest version of Safari in OS X Yosemite defaults to only displaying the domain name of the website you are visiting, rather than the complete URL that many users have long been accustomed to seeing. If you’d like to change back to how most web browsers have behaved and display the complete website URL, you can make a quick settings change in Safari to do this.

  1. Open Safari Preferences and choose the “Advanced” tab
  2. Check the box next to ‘Smart Search Field’ for “Show full website address”
  3. Exit out of Preferences to see the difference in a URL

Note: You would may need to be beyond the root level of a website to see the difference. Assuming you are, the change is immediately visible in the URL bar as the complete URL is now printed again, letting you know exactly what the URL of the website is.

RIP OS X Fax

RIP OS X Fax

Looks like Fax didn't make it this round. Spotlight will still bring you to System Preferences but graphically it isn't there anymore.

Yosemite Backgrounds

Yosemite Backgrounds

I have been to Yosemite and it's gordeous. When they annouced the name of the Operating System I was super excited because I had a sneaking suspition the relase would include new backgrounds. Thanks  to Apple you don't need to fly to California. You can enjoy the view sitting in front of your Desktop. And let me tell you. It's B. E. A. Utiful.
