Copy Link Text on Mouse Hover

I'm looking for a script which is relatively simple. I would like to copy a link text to clipboard, when pressing "Ctrl + c" when mouse cursor is hovering on a link, in Google Chrome. I would like to use Tampermonkey, and found this script, but does not work. Does anyone know how to do this?

Script found:

// ==UserScript==
// @name        URL Copy When Hover
// @namespace   com.atnbueno.url-copy-when-hover
// @include*
// @require
// @version     0.1
// @grant       GM_setClipboard
// ==/UserScript==

$(document).ready(function() {
  $("a").hover(function() {

    // @name        Copy URL on hover + Ctrl-C
    // @include     *
    // @grant       GM_setClipboard
    // @grant       GM_notification
    // ==/UserScript==
    document.addEventListener('keydown', e => {
      if (e.code === 'KeyC' && e.ctrlKey && !e.altKey && !e.shiftKey && !e.metaKey) {
        const a = document.querySelector('a:hover');
        if (a) {
          GM_notification(a.href, 'Copied')
  • Thank you for the script wOxxOm. It doesn't seem to work though :/

  • Works for me though.

  • Maybe there's software or a Google Chrome Extension that is preventing it from working on my PC. I've tried disabling all my extensions, but still doesn't work...
