Copy Website URL on Safari: While spending countless hours organizing lots of websites you frequent the most in Safari and saving them as your Favorites collection to revisit later. Also putting them in custom bookmark folders like “Work”, “Games” or some such, only to think that you cannot export their underlying URLs to share with others. Thanks to Safari for iPhone and iPad provides a not-so-obvious choice that lets you do just that. In our step-by-step guide, we’re going to display you how to copy your favorite website URLs in Safari for iPhone and iPad.

How to copy favorite website URLs in Safari

Here’s what you need to do to grab those multiple website URLs and use the collected website addresses to quickly share your favorites with friends or family.

Step 1:

Firstly, open Safari on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 2:

Click and hold the Bookmarks icon at the bottom, it’s the second icon from the right.

Step 3:

Now click the Bookmarks tab to show your bookmarked websites and bookmark folders.

Step 4:

Click and hold, or hit, the built-in Favorites folder on the list, or any of your previously-created custom folders for that matter, then select the Copy Contents choice from the menu.

You can paste this in another app or document, like Messages or Pages. This is specifically useful if you would like to quickly share many of your favorite website URL.

There doesn’t look to be an officially-punish way to duplicate this useful functionality on the Mac, or at least I was unable to find the corresponding choice in Safari for macOS.

In case you didn’t know, you can easily set Safari to show a different folder in Favorites.

What’s More?

On macOS Catalina 10.15 and later, tap the Safari menu and select Preferences. Now, click the General tab, then tap the popup menu next to “Favorites shows” and choose one of the previously created bookmark folders to serve as your new Favorites folder.

On iOS 13 and later, you can also select where your Favorites are saved in Safari by going to Settings → Safari → Favorites, then choose one of your previously created folder that contains favorites that you’d like to see when you select Favorites from your bookmarks.
