How to Show FULL URLs in Chrome Browser Address bar

It is now possible to always show FULL URLs in Google Chrome. In this blog post, learn how to enable this experimental feature.

Many Chromium-based web browsers such as Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi have the option in the settings to display full URL in address bar. So far, the same option was missing in the Google Chrome browser, but lots of users were demanding the same feature and finally, the same feature is available.

Starting with the Chrome browser in the Canary channel v83, there’s an experimental feature called “Always show full URLs”. Once you enable the feature, it is possible to see the full URL right from the Address bar context menu.

Next, you need to visit the following flag address: chrome://flags/#omnibox-context-menu-show-full-urls

Here, you need to change the Settings for Context menu show full URLs from Default to Enabled.
