Re: Unable to save a URL from Safari

I tried to save a URL from within Google and elsewhere and it won't work. Rather than a https:// full link, I see a concealed link or a very long line of text.

For example searching for "flower pots" appear like this instead of the URL:

Flower pots & planters - IKEAhttps://www.ikea.com › Products › Decoration

One of the links I had previously saved now redirects to another link and I wanted the full URL:

Ditch the pots, use soil blocks! | Chelsea Green Publishinghttps://www.chelseagreen.com › ditch-the-pots-use-soil-...

Sorry, but I'm unclear what you're trying to do. Safari doesn't have a "Save URL" command. The URLs are there just hidden in text.

If in a Google search page I use the contextual menu to "Copy Link" it works as expected, and just copies the URL, not the text it is hidden within.

If I just highlight text and command-C I get something different.

But if you paste a URL here it will often hide the URL, so it depends on what you're doing with the text/html you copied.
