Unless the thief reinstalled the OS, unfortunately. But even if he merely deleted the original account and created a new one, this method should still work! Let's hope he was lazy or incompetent.

Hmm, this answer (in the linked thread) seems to imply %W actually behaves somewhat different than documented - at least in the observed results. But the poster didn't specify whether he right-clicked from within the folder, or merely on the folder icon, which might explain the deviation.

So would %V or %W be the proper usage? It seems like %V just imitates %W in certain circumstances. So should I always just use %W then, if I want the directory?

Yea, I found that answer after kinokijuf posted! I don't think the question is a duplicate, rather I think the answer to this question is the other topic. =P I'll add the link into kino's answer.

I was thinking that myself, but I wasn't sure. It's not directly programming related - it has to do with the format of shell commands on Windows.
