How can I add a right click menu item so that when actioned on a folder it will copy the full folder path to the clipboard.

eg. If I right click on folder "ABC" on the desktop it should copy "C:\Users\User1\Desktop\ABC" to the clipboard.


If you Shift + Right-Click you'll see a Copy as Path menu option.

  • @tombull89: I hope while you were at it you found the Command Prompt option as well in the same 'Shift'ed context menu. :) – Karan Jul 4 '13 at 11:07

    @tombull89 I hope you also know that entering "CMD" in a normal explorer window' address bar opens the command prompt with that current location already preset? :) – nixda Jul 4 '13 at 14:15

There is such option if you use shift while you right click on folder. It is named Copy as Path
