In Windows, to get the complete path of selected file / folder, we just right click on it and select properties & can copy the path of selected file / folder.

But I didn't find any option in the Get Info view of a selected file / folder, address is given but we can't select or copy it.

Is it possible to copy path from info screen? Is there any alternative?

Where do you need the path? Normally you can just drag&drop the file or folder to the interface where you need the path. This works in the Terminal app for example.

OOhh ! That's what I needed. – Sagar R. Kothari Nov 11 '09 at 22:12

Command G ("Go to..") will open a dialog box where you can type in the path that happens to default to the current path of your active window.

In my OS (10.5.7) the "Go to folder" command is [shift+command+G] and it isn't pointing to my active window path. The Terminal thing works like a charm. Thank you!
