How do you get the URL of a particular place on Google Street View?

(1/6) > >>

J Route Z:
If I want to pinpoint a certain location on Street view, how do I retrieve that long link? All I get is this, which doesn't help : https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en .

Zeffy:
Click the button on the left that looks like a chainlink. Then you can either copy that link in the textbox, or you can hit "Short URL" which will do the same thing except make the URL considerably smaller and easier to type.

Here's an image if you don't know which button I'm talking about...

vtk:
If you have entered a search query, make sure you remove the resulting marker from the map before you generate a link, or many mobile users will see that search result instead of the map view or streetview perspective you meant to share.

Step 1. Put the pegman anywhere on the spot you want to share.

Step 2. Click on the chain button (the share button)

Step 3. The link will be generated, and use the short link in order to avoid annoying other users.

Step 4. You might not copy with the drop-down. If it persists, outline the entire link and press the keys CTRL + C.

Step 5. Post it along with the thread in order to use street view in a certain spot.

Hope it helps!

Step 6. Click the Preview button before clicking Post, and click the link in the preview window, to make sure you really got what you wanted.
