    Question Select entire address with one click in Chrome

    How do I configure Chrome so that I can select an entire address with one click in the address bar?

    It is triple-click: one lets you edit, two selects the entire word, three selects the entire text.

    I think henrywm was referring to using just one click and causing the URL to be highlighted. This makes it easier to either copy the URL or type in a new URL.

    I too would like to know.

    Most of us just press CTRL+L with our other spare hand.

    Control+L OR F6 both highlight the full URL. I would like to figure out how to get it to highlight in a single click. Didn't see anything in chrome://flags/ that appears to do this.
