Not really sure what you're asking... What exactly do you want to do?

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator -- Internet address of a webpage. You want to save what exactly, the very http:// address? The website content? Then, how are the USB sticks connected? Are they mounted already? If so, you can define a list variable with target file paths, iterate through it and save the files one by one at each of the sticks.

That can be done by threading, no problem. But first, please specify if it is a file to be saved or what?

OK you can just copy it to a file then copy it to the USB sticks but it won't perform the 5 copy operations at once it will copy them one by one

+6

by the way you need some HTML with python cause you need a method to click if you mean to perform it with a button but not if you perform it with hyper link that can be clicked

what type of shortcut you will use for the link : icon or file or what ?

do you want to set your path or just copy it an easy copy :p

please make your question more clear like making points one by one believe me some people start down voting and roasting for that like Stack Overflow

I don't think anything can be done about it, at least not from the programming level at this stage... EDIT: Unless you could map those disks externally and used mapped addresses in the Python code.

@Sarah No problem. Let me know if this works, so I can mark this Q as "Solved" :)

I have to copy 1 url to a lot of usb-sticks. I am looking for a way to automate it with 5 usb-sticks at once.

My idea was to be able to do them all at once instead of one by one.

are you using unix-like or windows ?

Init: on Windows 10, it is a file type url. If you double click on it, you go to the website. (I'm quite new to this, still learning.)

So i need to copy a hyperlink, Kuba.

Challenge : copy 1 url to 5 usb sticks in 1 click, max double click. With guarantee that all destination drives are written. To make it easier: destinations are empty.
