Vista: Copy as Path


Useful but hard to discover feature in Vista.  To copy a filename with full path information to the clipboard, shift-right-click on a file and choose Copy as Path.  For example:

2007-08-01 Copy as Path

Copies the following to my clipboard:

“C:\dump\Reports\10435.rdl”

    How did you enable it though?

  2. Nothing to enable and nothing to install.  It is a built-in feature of the Vista Windows Explorer.

    My bad, missed at the shift+right click 😉 Very cool feature.
