Share Pages with QR Codes
QR Codes have been around a long time, but unless you have a smartphone you’ve noticed them but have never used them. But if you do have a smartphone, then you know you can point your camera at a QR code and scan it to get more information about a product or service.
How many of you noticed the QR Code generator in Chrome and Microsoft Edge? Visit any site, click in the address bar, and you’ll see the QR code generator icon.
You can create a QR code for any site and download it to your computer as a png image file. You can share QR images with a friend instead of sending a link. Or send them to your smartphone. Then scan the QR code with your smartphone’s camera to open the link.

So, now you know how to create a QR code for any website and share the QR code image instead of a link.
I was so ecstatic to read about QR codes! I never noticed the symbol in Chrome or knew what the codes actually did. Thank you SO much! (Hey…I turned 66 and I get excited over little things I learn)! LOL 😉
I have been wondering about these things (QR Codes) for some time now. But knew absolutely nothing about them, or what they’re used for. You’ve simplified that for me, a great deal. They’re just replacements for URLs. aren’t they? I can hardly wait to start actually using them now – you guys have made me just a little smarter today! And from what I’m seeing out there now, this country needs a lot more smarter people, be proud of yourselves for what you do.
I have TRIED to learn how to do this. I’m too thick or too old I think. I can’t learn it. Even my kids and grandkids tried to show me and help me. I’m hopeless. LOL Oh well. Glad to know there are others who have learned this. Probably not as old as I am tho.
Hey Gina, me too, especially when I saw people scanning and wondered. I’m 70 and still glad to learn.😊
Hey TC, I never see one when I go to a site. Is it because I have third party cookies blocked? Out of curiousity, what is the difference between regular cookies and third parties? Not alking about the sugar in cookies. 😁 Judy
