What are you trying to accomplish with this? – Indrek Sep 4 '12 at 1:34
I've got a script that can give you the path for a folder open in Windows Explorer. Would that help at all? – SaintWacko Sep 4 '12 at 16:21
That would definitely help. – Ishan Jan 19 '13 at 3:14

This is what I use to run the file currently open in Notepad++ using Shift+Enter

#IfWinActive Notepad++
    Send ^s
    WinGetTitle, Title, A
    StringReplace, Title, Title,  - Notepad++, , All
    Run %Title%
    ;Notify("File Executed",Title,-2,"GC=555555 TC=White MC=White")
