Reset safari is shown but not highlighted so it won't let me
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, we do it via a keyboard shortcut, so first we make this
Launch System Preferences, click on the Keyboard preference, click the Shortcuts tab, and click the App Shortcuts entry. Now click the plus (+) button that appears below the list of shortcuts, in the sheet that appears choose Safari from the Application pop-up menu, and in the Menu Title field enter Reset Safari… (the elipsis character—created by typing Option-semicolon—is required). Enter the shortcut you’d like to use and then click on the Add button.
Then in Safari use this Shortcut
Let me know the results please

Im a complete novice keyboard preference?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, this method is probably easier Kyle
Click on the Apple Menu in the upper left-corner of your screen and choose “Force Quit” from the menu. The Force Quit window opens.
Make sure Safari is highlighted and click the Force Quit button. This should shut down Safari. Close the Force Quit window.
Hold down a Shift key on your keyboard as you relaunch the Safari browser (usually by clicking the Safari icon on the dock)
This should then remove it
Let me know the results please
