Image from store Tab Link Copier
Description from store Copies the current page url and title as a rich text link. Useful when you want to refer to a web-page in a document you are writing - with one click on an icon the link gets copied to clipboard so you can later on simply paste it in a google doc or text editor. To copy the link of the current tab click on the extension's icon or use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+C (Command+Ctrl+C for Mac). In case of using the shortcut this extension will ask for tabs permissions in order to query the current tab's url.

  • (2023-05-31) Eunseo Cho: You saved me! Thanks a lot for your help. My only wish is that.. if I could paste it without the font and size (just text&link) it would be much easier! Now I have to reset the font and size after writing my mail.
  • (2023-03-17) Mozammel Haque: Works fine, but my purpose was to copy the clean link, it didn't have any option to set that as the default action.
  • (2021-01-14) Anatoliy Savchak: Works well with MS Teams. Does not work with MS Word. Fix it.
  • (2020-11-05) Anna Colley: This does exactly what I wanted and is going to save me SO much time. This copies the title of the tab as a clickable link that points to the URL. No ugly, bare URLs. It does not copy the title and the bare URL as text...there are other extensions that do that if that's what you're looking for.
  • (2020-09-28) Frank Maloney: Excellent! Works perfectly and saves me several click in Google Docs. My only wish is that the pasted link matched the documents existing font size, it appears to always paste 9 point text, otherwise 10/10.
  • (2020-09-19) Erik Alcala Salero: If I knew this existed ! I did something similar with a script and sent the url as rtf link but the problem was this happened always.. now I can configure a nice shortcut to use only when I need it, yes I can't see the url and only the page title in some external editors but this is very very very useful !! I share the usage of this great extension: I use a personal information manager to store notes, so I can paste only the links that I want to save, no more unorganized bookmarks ! Appreciate it very much Volodya Shtenovych, you are awesome !! Respect ! :)
  • (2019-04-18) Jeff Baker: This was the only extension that I could find that copies the URL and the Title in Rich Text. I use it to copy and share links quickly in Gmail. Most of the reviewers don't understand what copy as rich text means. The developer may want to post a video or some pictures. The extension works. But it is a little confusing. When I try the keyboard shortcut CTRL+Shift+C then Developer Tools opens up. So I just click the "Copy page link" icon in the toolbar and then I can paste in gmail. Another thing I don't like though is that when I click on the icon it says "Copy page link has requested additional permissions. It could display Notifications." I have to press Deny every time. I don't know why it needs to display notifications.
  • (2018-12-14) kouldb anyone: It only copies the page title. Not the URL. The extension's name is "Copy page link" & claims to copy the page link — and that's what it should do. Not something else. I can't stand it when developers treat me like a fool.
  • (2017-08-01) It's been two weeks since it stopped working.
  • (2017-07-17) r w: not working properly
  • (2017-04-07) Zdeněk Svoboda: OK
  • (2017-02-14) Paritosh Shah: Great utility to copy Url + title, saves countless context switches when pasting links.
  • (2016-08-30) Mr. Lance E Sloan: It only copies the page title, not the URL. I only needed the title anyway, but this extension should do what it says.

  • (2021-09-06, v:1.2.3) Jeff Baker: Solution to small font size
    I tried many things to try and stop the copied link from getting the default style from Chrome with a small fontSize and a fontFamily set. Nothing worked until I found this function: function copyToClip(str) { function listener(e) { e.clipboardData.setData("text/html", str); e.clipboardData.setData("text/plain", str); e.preventDefault(); } document.addEventListener("copy", listener); document.execCommand("copy"); document.removeEventListener("copy", listener); } You can use it like this in your extension code: var link = '<a href="' + url + '">' + title + '</a>'; copyToClip(link); With this code it copies the rich text link to the clipboard without any style attributes. If you change your code to the above then I think it will be a much more enjoyable experience for your users. Thanks again for the extension!
  • (2017-08-12, v:1.1) James Murdza: Uh-oh
    Stopped working, only pastes "undefined".
  • (2017-08-01, v:1.1) He's not working.
    It's been two weeks since it stopped working.
  • (2017-07-17, v:1.1) r w: url is not copied
    Only title is copied
  • (2015-12-18, v:1.1) David Rees: Copied in small font
    It seems to copy the link in a small font size. Could it possibly copy it without any font size (so when pasting the destination documents font size is used)? Thanks!
