Copying a URL from a Microsoft Edge browser

When copying a URL from the Microsoft Edge browser address bar, a hyperlink with the URL title as a label may be pasted instead of the URL link.

Note: This is a design behavior unique to Microsoft Edge.

To paste a URL link rather than the URL title, a user can use ctrl + shift + v, or change the Share, copy and paste preferences from the Edge Settings page to Plain text (Figure 1):

After the Share, copy and paste preference is changed, ctrl + v can be used to paste the URL link rather than the URL title.
