Everyone knows that right-clicking on a file or a folder usually brings up a menu with basic choices, like “Open” or “Copy”. For those that crave a little more out of their right-clicks, however, might I suggest holding the Shift key when you right click? In Windows Vista and 7 the usual menu that pops up will now include an option called “Copy as Path”. This actually copies the entire path of the file or folder to your clipboard, and allows you to paste it wherever you want.


This is useful for when you’ve located a file in Explorer and you want to upload it to a Web site. So, instead of taking the time to browse for the file on the site, you can just copy and paste its path directly.

Pretty neat, if I do say so myself!
