This question already has an answer here:

I am a frequent user of the [Shift] + [RightMouse] --> "Copy as Path" feature in Windows Explorer. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this, it's an easy way to copy a fully qualified path to a filesystem location, which is useful in many scenarios (eg. plugging in a path to upload a file via a web browser).

Since I use the option so frequently, I'm wondering if there is a way to persist this option in the Windows Explorer context menu, so that I do not have to press [Shift] each time.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Here is a solution. I havent tried it, but it looks legitimate.

From the website/author:

When the utilities are installed properly, Windows Explorer will get four new context menu options. Two of the menu options will be available for files and the other two will be for folders. These options will allow you to copy the path or the name of the file or folder that you have right-clicked.
