    How to get/display full path *and* file name of a file?


    Hi All,

    Any way to get/display the full path and file name of a file? It's easy to get the full path, but I want to get the path and file name. I know I can grab them separately. Can I get them together? How?

    I did a google and youtube search and didn't find any hits.

    Thanks,

    To get:
    Shift+right click the object and choose 'Copy as Path'.

    To display:
    Set folder view to 'Details' and set 'Path' as one of the attributes.

    Thanks, Edwin: while I might -- and usually do -- learn a few new things every day, hardly any of them are as helpful and useful as that little tip. You rock the Platinum vibe, my man!
