How To Copy a URL in Your Browser

copy a url in browser

With my work, I do a lot of testing and debugging. Knowing the exact URL of a page is important since I work remotely and can not see what the user is doing.

Parameters on a query string can be important information to help me debug a website issue.  (A query string is the information at the end of a URL after the question mark. i.e.  ?s=keyword&year=1999 )

How to copy a URL from your browser address bar is easy.

  1. Click anywhere on the address bar. It will highlight in blue.
  2. Copy the selected text. You can right click with your mouse and click the text “Copy”. You can also use your keyboard by holding the < Ctrl > key (Windows) and clicking the “c” key.
  3. Then go to your email and click in the body. You can then right click with your mouse and click the text “Paste”. You can also use your keyboard and clicking the “v” key.
