How to Copy the Full Path of a File on Windows 10
How to Copy the Full Path of a File on Windows 10: Sometimes, it’s handy to copy the full path of a file or folder in Windows 10 to the clipboard. That way, you can paste the path into an open or upload dialog quickly without having to browse for it the file. Luckily, there’s an easy way to do it. Here’s how.
Find the file or folder whose path you’d like to copy in File Explorer. Hold down Shift on your keyboard and right-click on it. In the context menu that pops up, select “Copy As Path.”
(The location of “Copy As Path” in the context menu list will vary, depending on your system setup and the type of file you are right-clicking on.)
This will copy the full path of the file’s location onto the Windows clipboard. For example, the path may look something like this: “C:\Users\redwolf\Desktop\Example Images\Picture.jpg.”
You can then paste the path wherever you like, such as a file upload dialog in a web browser.
This tip also helps when you’re hacking the registry to add any application to your desktop context menu, running commands in the Command Prompt or PowerShell, and doing anything else that requires the full path of a file. There’s no need to type it out.
Windows 10 is a series of operating systems produced by the American multinational technology company Microsoft in the United States and Canada and released as part of its Windows NT family of operating systems. It is the successor to Windows 8.1, released nearly two years earlier, and was released to manufacturing on July 15, 2015, and broadly released for the general public on July 29, 2015. Windows 10 was made available for download via MSDN and Technet and available as a free upgrade for retail copies of Windows 8 and Windows RT users via the Windows Store. Windows 10 receives new builds on an ongoing basis, which are available at no additional cost to users, in addition to additional test builds of Windows 10 which are available to Windows Insiders. Devices in enterprise environments can receive these updates at a slower pace, or use long-term support milestones that only receive critical updates, such as security patches, over their ten-year lifespan of extended support.
