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 the F5 key it will either start dictation or have no effect on Safari, that's because you are using a whole different ecosystem.

  1. Make sure you are on Safari App,

  3. Now click on Reload Page
  4. The page will get refreshed!

You can also click on a refresh icon that you will see on the right side of the address bar as shown below image,
