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-...

To to your Safari Preferences and go to the last tab. Advanced.

be sure "show full website addresses" is checked. This may be the problem.

However, if you're going to Google or some page and right clicking on a link it will probably only save the full HTML which has the link name "Cameras" like below.

Cameras

instead of the full link

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiDsuTfj7fuAhWJKs0KHdWOCpUQjBAwAXoECAIQAQ&url=https://www.dpreview.com/products/cameras&usg=AOvVaw1p8XzmnPwnvlpc1o55ZzPE

you would have to go into the full link and copy out what you really wanted
