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.
Copy Title and URL Bookmarklet for Microsoft Edge
In Microsoft Edge (Chromium), create a bookmark to a sample site.
Then replace (edit) the URL of the bookmark with the following target:
Visit a website and click on the bookmarklet. It will copy the title and the URL of the current webpage, in the following format:

Instructions for the old 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.
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.

I think this is a very cool concept, but it doesn’t do exactly the same as MS Edge, however. When I use this on this page, this it the result:
Microsoft Edge Copy Title and URL of a Web Page [Bookmarklet] » Winhelponline:
But then the result is this:
Microsoft Edge Copy Title and URL of a Web Page [Bookmarklet] » Winhelponline
Which… would be a hyperlink in HTML, but is not exactly what I’m trying to do here.
Anybody has any idea how to do this / if it’s possible?
I jsut realized the HTML code made the hyperlink when the comment was published, but it wouldn’t work if I pasted it in an email or word document or something, it would like like this (hopefully this works this time):
“Microsoft Edge Copy Title and URL of a Web Page [Bookmarklet] » Winhelponline“
Thanks a million! LOVE IT!
Also, it would be great if there was a simple button to share this post!
