Copying a url to paste

When trying to copy a long url to paste into Tinyurl, I often miss off parts that are out of the box. I can use the arrow keys to see them, but often when selecting, only part is selected.

Is there a better way to do this? AOL/XP.

I don't highlight the link, just click TinyURL and it picks it up no problem.

It splits in half if I do that.

click before first letter of url, press shift & end keys simultaniously (highlights whole url) then ctrl & c (to copy) and ctrl & p (to paste where ever).

Yes! That works! Thanks.

My pleasure.

Those keyboard shortcuts, among others, also work in many other applications (Word etc..)

Dont you mean Ctrl + V to paste? If you use Ctrl + P then it will bring up a print dialogue. Sorry just being picky! :)

Yes, Blanc Glacier, you are correct with Ctrl+V. It must have been the pre-holiday excitement...


... now back to work!

I didn't notice 'cos I use the mouse to paste.
