CopyPath

Tiny .NET program that lets you copy the full path of a file/folder from within Windows Explorer.

Build Instructions

  • If you haven't already, install Visual Studio 2017 or newer. When installing, make sure you select the required .NET framework tools (.NET Version 4.7.2 is recommended, but anything from 3.0 should work)
  • Open file CopyToClipboard.sln
  • Select Configuration "Release"
  • Select Build > Build Solution
  • The executable should be in bin/release/CopyToClipboard.exe

Usage

  • Run the executable once without any arguments in order to install the Windows Explorer Shortcuts.
  • Open Windows Explorer
  • Right-click any file or folder
  • You should see an option like this:

  • Selecting the option should copy the path into your clipboard. The path will use forward-slashes instead of backward-slashes, so you can use it in a string without the need to escape it.
