there appears to be no forum appropriate to my specific question, sry

i want to compile a list of the ways by which mac devices can copy and paste an embedded link

i mean links like the one in this screenshot:

i need a list of ways for all mac types because i play an online game where we have to copy links and obviously everyone has a different-type internet portal...some folks are on macs without two mouse buttons? and some are on laptops with no mouse? idk, i have a Dell but i need a list if y'all can help me. Thank you so much for your time.

    Effectively, you're talking about a right-click action, followed by "Copy Link".

    1- If you have a right mouse button, you can use that, obviously
    2- Ctrl-click with either a mouse or trackpad
    3 - Click with two fingers on a trackpad (can be set as an option in Trackpad preferences)

    I think that's all.

    Your answer is not clear to me, but I think you can answer my question. How can I copy a selected portion of a screen that includes test, picture and link, so that when I paste it elsewhere the link remains active?

    Not worth pursuing. Case closed.

    My mistake. I didn't start this case, so I can't close it. Sorry.
