    How to paste shortcut to file by keystroke or command?


    I have new mouse with more buttons.
    In mode 1 I added to two buttons functions Copy and Paste.
    I want to use else one button to Paste shortcut to file.
    This function is in Explorer and I don't know keystroke, if any has...

    Is it possible to do by command or any keystroke?

    Thank you for all.

    If I have got your problem accurately, an easy way is to hold down the mouse button while dragging to select come text, then do Ctrl + C (to copy to the clipboard). Then move the pointer somewhere else (like in another document) and do Ctrl + V.

    But it is a mystery why your a new mouse is the only one giving trouble. I suggest a call to the manufacturer.

    Problem is not mouse and in mapping,
    I created buttons like actions for each button. I map them in AutoHotKey script.
    I can by AHK script call external command, batch or send keystroke...
    I need this for script, here's example for copy by Alt+F1:
    Send, ^{c 1}
    this piece of code simulates Ctrl+C by pressing Alt+F1.

    So, if exist any keystroke, command or any method how to:
    1. copy file to clipboard
    2. paste shortcut to file into any wished place
    I know that is possible to drag file out of window to other and holding left Alt then drop it - this creates shortcut to file instead copy...
    But this again needs work with mouse and also with keyboard.
    I saw in Windows Explorer "Paste link" or "Paste shortcut" (exact translate from Slovak don't know) first in Windows 8 and now in Windows 10 it can be pretty comfortable using mouse for all copy paste actions...
