How to capture the url in message such as this:
Mousing over the link shows the URL in echo area but there seems no
way to copy it.  It just disappears if you try to mouse to it.

<TAB> to get to the url, and "w" to copy it.

That sure looks like spam!

From the summary mode you donʼt need to TAB, 'w' will pop up a buffer
containing the links it finds in the selected article.

Would you please tell us what 'w' is bound to for you?  My gnus is so
customised that I can never depend on bindings being what others
have.  For me, 'w' is bound to gnus-article-fill-long-lines...

Thank you,

I have 'W w' burned into my muscle memory :-)

    w runs the command gnus-summary-browse-url (found in
    gnus-summary-mode-map), which is an interactive compiled Lisp function
    in `gnus-sum.el'.

    It is bound to w, A w.

    (gnus-summary-browse-url &optional EXTERNAL)

      Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 27.1.

    Scan the current article body for links, and offer to browse them.

    Links are opened using `browse-url' unless a prefix argument is
    given: Then `browse-url-secondary-browser-function' is used instead.

    If only one link is found, browse that directly, otherwise use
    completion to select a link.  The first link marked in the
    article text with `gnus-collect-urls-primary-text' is the
    default.

Oh, I figured he actually wanted to copy it for some reason.

Thanks to all posters.

And I found that if one presses `w' on that message from Summary
buffer it actually activates the URL.

I understanding you were saying to press `w' from Article mode. And
that truly does capture the url.  Just what I was after, thx.

Eric, yes it is spam, this link below:

Can't tell what it tries to do

Harry Responds:

That is not the behavior I see and far as I know I have no trick
changes in cmd sequences.

What I see when I press `w' on that message is summary buffer is that
it actually activates the URL and calls the web page.

Eric responded:
> Oh, I figured he actually wanted to copy it for some reason.

Right you are ... thanks again

Yes, as the docs state (see the last paragraph):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
w runs the command gnus-summary-browse-url (found in gnus-summary-mode-map),
which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in ‘gnus-sum.el’.

It is bound to w, A w.

(gnus-summary-browse-url &optional EXTERNAL)

  Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 27.1.

Scan the current article body for links, and offer to browse them.

Links are opened using ‘browse-url’ unless a prefix argument is
given: Then ‘browse-url-secondary-browser-function’ is used instead.

If only one link is found, browse that directly, otherwise use
completion to select a link.  The first link marked in the
article text with ‘gnus-collect-urls-primary-text’ is the
default.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Indeed, I misunderstood what you were asking for. Of course if you
browse such an url using eww (and honestly, who doesnʼt?), then you
can use 'w' in the *eww buffer to copy the url :-)
