How to control the amount of Flashcards

Hello Community,

I have been using Anki for about 2 months.
I enter New cards everyday around 20, each day with a different title according to the subject I am studying.
Now I feel I have to spend too much time opening each subject, versus just answering the questions if I had them just under 1 only title.
My computer is Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6.

What do you recommend to be more agile studying everyday?
Can I copy them in just one title? How?
Do you have any example video as how to do it more efficiently, please?
Let me know.

Warm regards,

I’m not sure what you mean by “title” - maybe what Anki calls “decks”?

Just to be sure: You downloaded your Anki from and it looks like in these official introductory videos:


maybe useful:

This is long but very useful: Michael Nielsen has written a thorough piece about long term memory and how he uses Anki.


If you’d like to merge the content of multiple decks into a single deck, please see

Thank you for your e-mail.

I answer your questions.

Yes I meant Decks.

Yes I downloaded Anki from the official webpage. Thank you for making sure.

The thing is that in the menu I just have:

So can I add some extension in the Settings, please?

Let me know,

The instructions linked above refer to the computer version of Anki - you appear to have the web version open, which only provides limited features. Please locate the app you downloaded (or fetch it from if you haven’t already), and then open it - you should find the interface matches the description in the manual.

Hi Dae,

Thank your for answering.

The problem is that as my computer is OS El Capitan 10.11.6 I cannot download the version for computer apparently.

The other 2 options that appear are:
-Anki for Mac OSX 10.13.4 (2.1.37) and
-Anki for Mac OSX 10.13.4 (standard 2.1.35)
and it is not available a computer version that fits my version El Capitan 10.11.6

Do you have a previous version with more options, please?

Let me know,

The 2.1.35-alternate button on that page supports macOS 10.10 or later.

That one is for Mac 10.13 and I have 10.11
Do you see what I mean?
I need an earlier version.

Do you know where I can find it?

Thank you,

Click the third button.



Hello Rumo,

Thank you for your visual answer.

The version I have is that one, the third.
I have downloaded again and again I have the same screen with just 3 options: Decks, Add and Search.

I see there is a distinction between login from the App and login from the website.
Can you please tell me which one is this one?

And how can I login in the website link?
It seems it is the key to have more options.

Let me know,

You seem to confuse opening a website in your web browser and installing and running a program.
But you don’t need the website. Just install the downloaded Anki version and open the program.


Yes I do that is why I asked.

Although following your recommendation in the previous e-mail, I have installed the program twice and I still just have the 3 options I mentioned.

Have a great evening!
