  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. The Copy option will copy whatever text is highlighted, regardless of where on the page, or which element, you right-click. There is a Copy Link option if the element is a hyperlink. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
