Copy the full path of a file from Windows Explorer

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/14

Every now and then, I learn a “new” feature that has existed for a very long time.

This time it is about the Copy as Path feature from Windows Explorer context menu:

  1. hold the shift key, then right click any file or directory
  2. select Copy as Path

This was introduced in Windows Vista ([WayBack] How to Get Windows Vista and 7’s “Copy as Path” Option in Windows XP Context Menu? – AskVG).

By default the Copy as Path is not in the context menu: you have to press the shift key. In the past, I used tools like ClipName from the PC TimeWatch people – Freeware « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff.

Seems I do not use that any more for just copying one filename, only for copying multiple.
