    I like Safari, but cannot find a way to open a page in a new tab without sending the page I'm in to oblivion.

    I know cmdT opens a new tab, but forget to do so and often lose a lot of work.

    I've searched Google but every solution offered NEVER works I still loose the page I'm on.

    Any definite solutions please.

    I'm not sure I understand your problem? Could you rephrase that?

    Press cmd when clicking a link, it should open a new tab every time.

    ^^^Bingo. You can also right click on the link and select 'Open Link in New Tab,' or 'Open Link in New Window,' to have it open in a separate Safari page.

    On my PC, I use AOL, when I click any link it opens in a new page automatically, I don't have to click anything else.

    I assume there is no way of doing this on my MPB then?

    I don't have my Mac with me at work, but I believe you can set that in Safari preferences. If not, try holding down the Shift key when clicking the link. That works in several different browsers, including, I think, in Safari. Try it and let us know if it works. Once you get used to it, it becomes automatic, like most keyboard shortcuts do.

    I think you can change your tab preferences in safari preferences under tabs.
