Filename Paths in Explorer

Most people probably know that right-clicking on a file or a folder usually brings up a menu with basic choices, like “Open” or “Copy”.

What you may not know is that you get even more out of this.  If you have either Windows vista or windows 7, simply hold down  the Shift key when you right click and the usual menu that pops up will now include an option called “Copy as Path”. This copies the entire path of the file or folder to your clipboard, and allows you to paste it wherever you want.
