Safari 4: How to Add a Site to Top Sites (Windows Only)

Safari’s Top Sites keeps track of the sites that you visit the most and displays preview thumbnails for these sites. You can manually add and pin sites to Top Sites as well. This trick works only on Windows machines.

1. Open Safari.

2. Go to the desired web site.

3. Once the site comes up, drag and drop the site’s favicon from the address bar onto your desktop.

4. Go to Top Sites.

5. Go to the bottom left corner and select Edit.

6. Drag the newly created shortcut to the position on the grid that you want the site’s thumbnail to appear.

7. The site’s thumbnail will be placed (and pinned) in the desired position.

8. Click the Done button. While the thumbnail will not initially show the Delete and Pin icons on its upper left corner, they will be there the next time you enter Top Sites’ Edit mode.
