Get File/Folder Location path to the clipboard

Time to time, you may want to get the full path of a file or folder location for documentation or email others.

It’s easy in Vista. Here is how.

1. Open the Explorer and go to the desired folder

2. Click SHIFT and right click on a file or folder

3. Select Copy as Path


4. Now the file or folder location (full path) is in clipboard. You can paste it (Control-V) anywhere you want.
