How to refresh Safari on Mac (macOS) using keyboard shortcut


If you are familiar with Windows Operating System then F5 Function key is used to refresh a webpage in a browser, but if you press F5 key it will either start dictation or have no effect on Safari, that's because you are using a whole different ecosystem.
