After the latest updates, Google Chrome doesn’t show you the full URL of a website anymore. In most cases, this is not an issue. 

But, what should you do if you need to display the full website URL? No worries, there is a simple way to force Google Chrome to do so. 

How To Force Chrome To Show Full URLs

As we mentioned above, forcing the Chrome browser to display the full URL of any website is quite simple. But it requires the use of the Chrome flag feature.

 

 

STEP 1: Copy this following text, chrome://flags/#omnibox-context-menu-show-full-urls, and paste it in the address bar of the browser. 

STEP 2: Press Enter. The feature you want to activate should be highlighted.
