There are several third-party extensions out there to copy webpage title and address, for browsers like Chrome, Firefox and others. Here is a neat trick to add your own Copy Title & URL bookmarklet for Microsoft Edge.
Open Microsoft Edge, visit a website and add it to the Favorites bar. Name the favorite as Copy Title & URL, or anything as you’d like.
Using Windows 10 v1703 and earlier?
Before that, close all instances of Microsoft Edge, and then start EdgeManage.
Edit the “Copy Title & URL” target URL, and set it to as follows:
Exit EdgeManage and commit changes to the database when it prompts you.
Start Microsoft Edge, visit a website and then click the Copy Title & URL bookmarklet you created.
You’ll be shown the following prompt with a text control box, showing the title, which is followed by the URL of the webpage. The text range is automatically selected for you.

All you need to do is press CTRL + C to copy the text to the clipboard and dismiss the dialog by clicking OK or pressing the ESCAPE key.
That’s it. You’ve added your first bookmark-let in Edge! Edge has just got extensions support since the Anniversary Update. So you may soon get a full-fledged “Copy Title and URL” browser extension from the Store.
