Next, in the list that appears, choose another folder. (If no folders are present in the list, you can create a new folder in Safari by tapping the Bookmarks button, selecting Edit, then tapping the New Folder button.)

Note! Choosing a different folder here will also change your default Favorites folder. From now on, whenever you add a new bookmark to Favorites, it will appear in this folder. Refer to below image where we are choosing the Magazine folder for Favorites:

Now, tap back once, then exit Settings. The next time you open Safari to a New Tab page, you.will see a list of favorites pulled from the folder you just selected; in our case, the Magazine folder. See below image:

If you would prefer having nothing listed on your New Tab page, you can create an empty folder and select it instead. The next time you open a new tab, the page will be completely blank.
