Is there a small utility that will let you get a link to the current file by right-clicking on it in Windows 7 (x64 Enterprise edition)? If the file is on the network, it can create the link as \\network_location\filename.xyz. Thanks.

Hold Shift and right click on the file or folder in Windows Explorer.

This will work in Windows Vista and 7. There are alternatives, including a registry hack, to do this in Windows XP and possibly older versions.
