ClipName from the PC TimeWatch people – Freeware

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/18

Every once in a while I need to copy a bunch of filenames to the clipboard.
This is where the freeware tool [WayBackClipName comes in action: it can copy them in various formats (and works much better than the similar [WayBackClipPath, which can only copy them as CSV)

Quote from the ClipName page:

ClipName is also a Context Menu extension copying the full pathname of the right-clicked file to the clipboard. This new version supports copy of multiple filenames either as a space separated list or as a CRLF separated list. DOS filenames (8.3) can now also be copied as well as the URL encoded name and the UNC name for remote files. Clipname supports a Copy command for filenames without including any path, URL Encoding for multiple selections and style encoding for Microsoft Word, Microsoft OneNote,… A version running under Windows Vista 64-bit is now available. It also allows to copy the UNC name for local files and folders. Version 1.3 adds the capability of copying the target URL for Internet Shortcuts from Windows Explorer and from within the IE Favorites bar.

It comes both in 32-bit x86, and in x64 versions.

  1. I’ve always used the [Shift]+[Right Click] “Copy as Path” context menu option.

      Thanks for the tip.
      If that would work for all Windows versions :-)

      I think this shift-context menu got introduced in Windows Vista; I didn’t have a chance yet to see if it works in Windows Server 2008.
