    Only one question: how do we copy a URL and paste it without the "https://www." text? Saving URLs to Contacts and Calendar for years and it looks cleaner without the https.Thank You

    Robert: No easy way to do that. Funny, as I consider it the opposite. When I see a URL without https:// I think it looks wrong and usually add it. You could just manually edit, of course. You could also build something in Shortcuts to remove the https:// and also the www. from the text in the clipboard. Not sure if you have used Shortcuts though or what your experience is there. It may not be worth the time to learn and construct something.

    What was the complete URL at Google to display the favicon? I can see everything up to "&domain_url=". Do you just add on the URL of the domain whose favicon you're seeking? Thank you for all these interesting lessons! I'm a Patron.

    Don't need to answer! I tried adding the URL, including the "https://" and it worked! What fun! Thanks.

    I often need to share project files with Windows users who can't open my .webloc filesā€”Is there a convenient way to generate files that will work on Windows and macOS?

    Jasper: If you need to share URLs with a Windows user, or anyone really, just give them the URL. Create a text document or anything and list URLs in there. Keep it simple.

    Obviously there's adding a hyperlink to a word or words in Pages (select word, right click, Add Link), so that clicking on the word takes you to the webpage. Much neater than including the web address as the link.

    Hi Gary, So I'm trying the trick at the end of the video to get the logo. But all of the sites I have been to do not have the = sign, I tried adding it and that did not work. What I'm I doing wrong?

    Thank you much,
    Liam

    Liam: Use that URL and after the equal sign put the website. So you type (or paste) this:
    https://www.google.com/s2/favicons?sz=64&domain_url=macmost.com
    to get the icon for MacMost. For another site replace macmost.com with the domain for that site.
