    How to Add Copy path to Context Menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Copy path or Copy as path will copy the full path of selected items (files and folders) to the Clipboard so you can paste the full path(s) of the item(s) where you like.

    You can use Copy path from the Home tab in the ribbon of File Explorer by default, and use Copy as path by default by holding the Shift key while right clicking on selected items.

    This tutorial will show you how to add Copy path to the context menu of files and folders for all users in Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.


    EXAMPLE: "Copy path" context menu

    Hello X47GVN,

    I'm not aware of a way to do so using this option that uses the built-in "Copy path" feature of Windows.

    You could use "Copy address" or "Copy address at text" from right clicking on the address bar of File Explorer for single paths without being quoted.
