Did you know… You can copy a file’s full path from the File Tab Channel? – #125

Now this is a feature I absolutely cannot live without.  This was one of the two best features we’ve added in Visual Studio 2005 (in my humble, bias opinion).  Tomorrow’s tip will be the second best.


On the File Tab Channel, you can right-click and select Copy Full Path.  And volia’, you have the full path for that file tab. 

In previous version of Visual Studio (like 2002 and 2003), you had to go to the properties browser and copy the full path from there.  In even earlier versions, well, um, i don’t recall.  (i started working at Microsoft in Sept 2001).  Maybe someone can leave a comment how this was done in earlier versions.
