Copy Your File Names to the Clipboard

There are times when you might want to be able to have a list of file names, maybe your documents or photos or even music.  You might want to copy them to the "Clipboard" so the text can be moved to a word processing program such as MS Word, MS Excel or even to Wordpad or Notepad to be manipulated, printed or just saved.


It isn't as difficult as you might think, especially with Vista or Windows 7.

Screen Capture of Windows Explorer Copy As Path
  1. In Windows Explorer, highlight one or more files.
  2. Hold down the shift key, and right-click on any of the highlighted files.  
  3.  When the context menu pops up, left click on the Copy As Path entry that has magically appeared because you're holding the shift key down.
  4. Now it is saved in the "Clipboard" and you can use CTRL/V to paste it to the program of your choice.
What a great tip! ☺
