    Season's Greetings

    I would love to learn how to create a keyboard shortcut to send/share a Safari url to Notes. If you know how, please reply with directions. If an app is needed, please share which.

    Cheers

    Thank you for sharing all those resources. I learned a lot.

    However I did not find what I was looking for. If you know exactly how to set up a shortcut for what I explained in my original post, please share the step-by-step to create that. What you described does not offer the option to create a shortcut but I am attempting to create. And for what it's worth I am using El Capitan.

    Thank you again

    Well you can't just put make a simple keyboard combo to move address from a browser to another Application. You need a Automater script you need to write then attach that script to a keyboard shortcut!

    No need for Automator, but keep in mind that the Notes app stores a clickable Web link when "Sharing" a link. Read this: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21534?locale=en_US
    1. Quit Safari.
    2. Follow those instructions at the Apple web page, creating a Keyboard Shortcut for Safari. Add a new Shortcut and type "Notes" (without the quotes) and type in a keystroke that suits you - my example shows Command-Option-Control-N.
    3. Restart Safari.
    That's it, you're done.
