Add 'Copy Path' To The Right Click Context Menu

No matter what type of computing environment you have up and running, It's Inevitable that you'll be working with files and folders on a daily basis. Be It copying & pasting, or simply editing a text file with a few changes here and there, the need to perform such tasks can be quite demanding. It's also Important to know exactly where they're located, hence In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Copy Path to the right-click context menu.

So what exactly does Copy Path do? Well, I'm glad you've asked! Put simply, start off by selecting a heap of files and/or folders by highlighting each one. Then right-click on any of the files/folders (that you've selected), click on Copy Path, and It will copy the directories of each one to the Clipboard. You can then paste the Information Into Notepad, and save It as a point of reference. Rest assured, this will make perfect sense as you view my tutorial!

I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and add Copy Path to the right-click of the mouse thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Add Copy Path.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

Copy Path has now been added to the right-click context menu. We'll check It out In the next step. First, you need to select the files/folders that you want to copy their path. For the purpose of this tutorial, I've highlighted a few folders In my Program Files directory, with the Intention to copy their entire path to the Windows Clipboard.

Step Four:

I've now right-clicked on one of my highlighted folders and as you can see, Copy Path Is readily available, so I've simply clicked It.

Step Five:

Every path (directory) pertaining to my folders, has now been copied to the Windows Clipboard. I shall paste the Information Into Notepad. To access It, enter notepad Into the Windows 10 Search box, and hit the search result at the top.

Step Six:

Upon right-clicking In Notepad and selecting Paste, as you can see, the path to every folder In Step Three above has been entered. Perfect result! I can save this for future reference.

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove Copy Path from the right-click context menu, simply double-click the Remove Copy Path.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

This tweak comes to very good use, If you're dealing with a high volume of files and folders located In different directories, and want to copy their path Into Notepad, thus allow you to easily locate them at any point In time. Another good thing about It, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, leaving very little to no room for corruption.
