I have a lot of bookmarks in Safari and I would like to sort them alphabetically. It's a pain to do it manually, and I don't seem to find a "Sort alphabetically" menu option.

Is this at all possible?

  • open a Finder window and the Safari Bookmarks window
  • drag the folder(s) you want sorted from the Safari window to your Desktop
  • go to Finder and open each folder, set the view to list view and then close the window
  • drag the folder back into Safari’s Bookmarks window Safari will add it
  • open the folder in Bookmarks and you will see your new sorted bookmarks

Note: You’ll have duplicates of bookmarks because the old ones are still there. Click on it and delete it.
