Here is a quick little tip I just learned that I use all of the time now. In Windows Vista, if you hold down the Shift key and right click on a file, a new option appears in the context menu: "Copy As Path"
This will copy the full path of the file you select to the clipboard. This is very handy for pasting file paths into a command prompt window. Why this option is so hidden, I don’t know.
I hope this saves you some time.
Nice one!!! Thanks!
Weird that it’s hidden. Nice find!
It is hidden because most people don’t need it all the time 😉
This function is present in Total Commander and in all his ancestor….. i rembember i was using in Windows ‘ 95…..

Wow! It seems there are so many tricks with Windows/Vista, etc. that no one knows all of them, but different people know different ones. This does seem useful. I have just clicked in the address bar (breadcrumbs?), but this is easier. Thanks for the post.
Nice Luke. I like that one. That’s getting filed away. I hope I remember it.
