There’s a hidden gem in Windows 7 onwards which copies a file’s full path directly to the clipboard. I know this isn’t directly related to PTFB Pro or macros in any way, but I just discovered it and I find it hugely useful, so I wanted to share it. Here’s how it works:
- In a file window, hold down the SHIFT key while right-clicking a file
- The resulting popup (context) menu will now contain a new option called “Copy as path”
- Select Copy as path get the full path to the file into the clipboard. And what’s more, if the path contains spaces it puts quotes around it automatically.
There you go. Hope you find it as handy as I do!
