    For some reason I can no longer copy a URL in Chrome browser on Android. When I tap the URL bar, it goes blank and only offers two options, PASTE or CLIPBOARD, there is no option to COPY there anymore. I cleared the clipboard to see if that helped, but that took away the options of PASTE and CLIPBOARD, and only leaves "Search or type web address" in the URL bar.

    What did they do to Chrome to remove the functionality of copying the URL? Why did some ***** come up with this, just to screw with people?

    Does anyone know what I can do to change this back so I can just press the URL bar and then copy the URL to paste it into a text or email message and send it to someone?

    Welcome to the forums. Don't you get the clipboard icon if you tap the URL?

    On my Pixel 2 XL, if I tap the address bar it DOES clear. What happens is that the current URL is now the top line below the address bar. At the end of that line is a pencil (edit), tap that then long-press in the address bar, tap select all and then copy...

    Or what @Javier P said. that's what I get for opening a post then not replying for 10 minutes...

    Are you seeing the words "PASTE" and "CLIPBOARD," or is that your interpretation of the icons that show up? I see the same thing that Javier P shared above, and it works fine.
