I think it would be quite handy if in the post & page overviews, there is a button to copy to the link to that page/post in the quick links. So, you don't have to go to the page OR have to open the editor to copy the permalink.

This would especially be handy if you work with hidden pages.

Thanks for the suggestion, @NekoJonez!

I think that something like this is already possible: When hovering any post or page in the respective lists, there is a "View" link shown (to open that post/page). If you right-click on that and choose "Copy link URL" (or similar, depending on your browser), you get the desired URL in the clipboard for reuse elsewhere.

I don't think that adding a dedicated Copy button will add much extra benefit over this, but might instead be viewed as another user interface element that could make the screen look bloated and confusing to new or inexperienced users.

I'll therefore mark this ticket as a potential "worksforme" candidate, pending other developers's feedback.

#57574 proposes to add a Download link in the Media Library, where it already has a Copy URL button.

Opening the View link's context menu might work well enough in the Post listings already. However, if the URL is not all Latin characters, a copy button could give the readable decoded version of the link.άρθρο/ instead of
