    Microsoft Edge: Paste URL into address bar


    Been using browsers since 1994's Netscape and never thought I would be asking such a question *Biggrin

    But...

    I am unable to paste a URL into the Microsoft Edge address bar. It appears the issue goes back > 4 years; and although I have searched extensively for a solution, no suggestions have resolved the issue. I can paste clipboard URL into Chrome or FF or Notepad or Word or [You name the app here], but not in the Edge address bar. AND, it is not limited to the address bar; I cannot paste anything into the search bar either. I can type in either bar, just not able to paste clipboard data.

    I have tried all of the following, to no avail:

    1) Click in address or search bar or Ctrl + L, then Ctrl + V
    2) Click in address or search bar or Ctrl + L, right-mouse click and select "Paste"
    3) Settings | App | Microsoft Edge | Advanced options | Repair
    4) Settings | App | Microsoft Edge | Advanced options | Reset
    5) Open Edge Settings | Privacy & security | Show search and site suggestions as I type: Disable (i.e., turn off)

    I have seen no other suggestions, as of yet.

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Windows version: 64-bit Windows 10 1903 (clean install--new laptop; not an update from other version/build)
    Edge version: 44.18362.267.0
    Edge HTML version: 18.18362

    :)

  2. Microsoft Edge Address Bar

    Hi Zach,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to open actual address of websites with short forms as you wish:

    • Open Microsoft Edge, click on More actions(...) at the right top corner.
    • Click on View advanced settings, under Search in the address bar with
      click on down arrow.
    • Choose <add new>, try to add the default website.
    Secondly, as opening pages in new tab is set by design, I suggest you to provide this as a feedback.

    Hope it helps. Feel free to contact us for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.

    Copy / Paste from Edge Address Bar Question


    It works in Edge exactly as it works in other browsers (possible exception: never used FF, don't know about that): you click on address bar, the URL is automatically selected and you can copy it. If you unselect the URL and right click, you cannot copy it.

    Edge when URL is selected, Copy & Cut enabled:

    Edge when URL is not selected, Copy & Cut disabled, not shown:

    IE when URL is selected, Copy & Cut enabled:

    IE when URL is not selected, Copy & Cut disabled:

    Chrome when URL is selected, Copy & Cut enabled:
