I have a set of websites I’d like to check everyday at the start of the day.
I can’t find a way to automate opening a new Safari window with a set of tabs.
I found how to add tabs to an existing window.
I feel like I’m missing something, is this really not possible to automate without Apple Script? Am I just being too fussy wanting this to be in a distinct browser window?
I’m open to using Shortcuts, bash, Alfred, whatever.
I just pin the tabs. So that they are available when ever I launch it. It persists even after a reboot.
Alternatively you can put all those websites into a separate bookmaker folder and launch all of them in tabs when needed within that bookmark folder too
Thanks @sangadi. I guess what I hoped was that I could trigger this from a Stream Deck button. I’m so spoiled lol.
I tried putting them into a folder in favourites, but from the home screen you can’t do the right click to open in tabs.
Pinned tabs is a good idea, but I want to review the tabs and then close them, like a checklist essentially. That’s why I wanted them in their own window.
I may wind up just using a different browser for this.
You can do this with Bunch.

Thanks @MevetS. I’ve used bunch in the past, I’ll give it another go. On scanning the instructions it didn’t specifically see how to open a set of tabs in a new window though? Or even how to open a new window?
Hmmm … I do not know.
My use case is to have Safari open with a set of websites in tabs, as part of my “Morning” bunch, to start my day. I do not already have Safari open.
gosh. I would also want to do it first thing. of course safari won’t already be open DOH! thank you!
You’re able to do this in Shortcuts, I use it every morning. I don’t have my Mac with me at the moment, but once I do, I’ll post the shortcut.
Please post the shortcut. I will need that too.
Keyboard Maestro is another method of doing this, and you can link it’s macros to your Stream Deck. I have a variety of macros to launch certain websites that I can launch from my SD.
I have done that with a shortcut as well which then opens a Tab-Group in Safari for the sites I want/need. This shortcut is then triggered via Stream Deck. Super easy.
In Shortcuts there is a safari action to open an existing tab group, so once that is set up, the shortcut is only one action.
