Currently, the context menu 'Copy path to clipboard' only works for the parent folder.

IOW, when you do a 'Copy path to clipboard', you get the path to the parent folder.

I am wondering why you don't let the same thing for items in the file pane.

I mean, it would be MUCH more useful if I could select an item (any item) and using 'Copy path to clipboard' context menu to get the full path --including the file name, if it's a file.

Could you please consider this.

Thank you

Copy to clipboard (include paths): Ctrl+Alt+C
Or for those poor mouse-bound souls: Right-click > File Names > ...

Wink

Or maybe only in beta v5?

Ahh.. so, that's where it is hidden..

I must say, 'File Names' is quite an obscure title for that.

IMO, it should be 'Copy to Clipboard..' instead of 'File Names' and the sub-menu labels should be:

-- File/Folder Name
-- Full Path
-- URL

and 'Insert to Command Line' is IMO superfluous: the 3 sub-menus are sufficient; I can easily handle that with 'Paste' or Ctrl+V.

Plus, it doesn't cover 'Insert Full Path into Command Line', 'Insert URL into Command Line' anyway.
