Control L Highlights the URL

Control L

Control L

A really handy keyboard shortcut to practice is Control L (Command L on the Mac). Control L will highlight the URL in the address bar. If you ever need to share a link to a Google Doc or other webpage this is very convenient.

Control C

Control L will only HIGHLIGHT the URL, it does not copy the URL. To copy you will want to hold down the Control key and strike C for copy. To paste the URL use Control V.

  1. Don’t forget that if you highlight text in a Google Doc or Site and press ctrl+k it will automatically bring up the Link dialog box.

    Anyone else get the sense we need a CTRL LOCK button?
