Is it possible to display the full path of a document opened in Windows notepad in the title or the status bar?
If this is not possible, is there a way to get the full path of a document currently opened in notepad?

If the file has unsaved changes, and you click to close it, you get a message containing the full path, e.g. on Notepad (Windows 7): 'Do you want to save changes to C:\New Text Document.txt?'. You can then press ctrl+c to copy the path to the clipboard.
For a file with no unsaved changes one could, for example, press space and then click to close it.
