    Copy the path of a File/Folder to Clipboard in WIndows 7 & Vista

    It is sometimes useful to copy the path to a file (or folder) in the clipboard (to paste in a forum, for example).

    This is very simple to do under Vista and Windows 7:

    • Right-click the file (or folder) while holding the keyboard Shift key.

    • Then select the item: Copy as Path.

    • The path to the file / folder is copied to the clipboard.

    • Now you can paste the path from the Clipboard to any text Editor as normal paste method (Eg. Ctrl + P)

    You can use ClipPath (Version 2.1) for that. This cool little freeware program can easily add a "Copy to Path" context menu to Windows Explorer. If you select multiple filenames, you'll be able to create a list of semicolon ';' separated filenames on a single line.

    Installation of this extension is easy. First, copy ClipPath.dll and ClipPath.inf to any directory. Open the Explorer and right-click on the Setup Information file (ClipPath.inf). Choose the INSTALL command. When you're done installing, you can delete the original files.
