Copy path as text

Top  Previous  Next

I frequently need to copy the full path of a file or folder. In Windows 95 through Windows XP, I used the “Send to X” toy in Windows PowerToys to add Clipboard as Name to the Send To menu item (available in the right-click context menu). In Windows Vista and Windows 7, the same result can be accomplished by selecting a file or folder, pressing <Shift>, and right-clicking. However, I find that cumbersome.


So, in WPDName 2.0, just select a file or folder and click the Copy path button on the navigation/tool bar. The full path of the selected file or folder will be copied to the clipboard as text.
