Fixed for you.

Also, the query string can be surgically removed from the long URL if necessary.

If I copy the URL from the bar, I get https://maps.google.es/maps?hl=es&tab=wl :sombrero:.

And the "hl=xx" can be removed too. I do that because otherwise Google Maps will always display in Spanish, and this is an (American) English-speaking forum. Doing that will display Google Maps in the language one has set for Google, regardless of the domain.

That's why you copy the link URL from the little chainlink icon and not the browser's URL bar.

I was wondering what that bit was.  I suppose if it's hl=en then it's maybe okay to leave it there, since this is an anglophone forum?
