Keyboard shortcut for the windows explorer address bar

In Windows XP's version of Windows Explorer, it was easy to get the folder address. From the document pane I could just hit Tab once and the address bar would be highlighted, ready to Ctrl-C the address.

This no longer works in Windows 7. How can I copy the address of the current folder without having to use the mouse to click in the address bar?

Hm, a good answer was linked after I posted the question: the shortcut Alt+D selects the current path.

The question and answer were posted in 2010. I see no reason for you to have created this question or your answer above? – HaydnWVN Oct 3 '12 at 11:54
@HaydnWVN When writing a question, possible related topics that might contain the answer are presented, similar to the sidebar on the right. It sounds like the linked topic wasn't presented then, but only afterwards. – Daniel Beck Oct 3 '12 at 12:12
Which means he didn't try searching... Ah well, can't do that every time I guess :) – HaydnWVN Oct 3 '12 at 12:16
@HaydnWVN: Thank you but I did search and didn't find it. So I figured this extra post would present an extra (=bigger) target for the search, which is why I also linked to the correct answer. Vote to delete the whole Q&A if you disagree but I felt this made sense. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Oct 3 '12 at 12:31
