    Many, many years ago I posted about a little tool "Ninotech Path Copy 4".
    I used it for many years on a 32-bit Windows system. But it is not for 64-bit.
    Very recently I found "Path Copy Copy" which may be considered as its successor, and it works on 64-bit (well, it does on my Win 7 Pro 64-bit).
    I tried to search on the forum to see whether it was previously mentioned, but I couldn't find it (or I did not search good enough; that could very well be the case).

    It gives you a right-click context file menu option on a file from where you can easily copy its name or path as Short Name or Long Name, and more. Very, very handy tool!
    I needed a quick tool to get the Short Name of a file.

    I am sure that there are lots of other ways to do it.

    Site:
    http://pathcopycopy.codeplex.com/

    The site has screenshots etc.

    So far I like it.

    FileMenu Tools has a similar feature, plus many other useful context menu add-ons. I love it, but the installer may try to install some crapware (if connected to the internet), so be careful to uncheck all those boxes if you decide to try it.

    Hi pajenn,

    NOD32 gave a warning at that site and blocked
    hxxp://www.windows8downloads.com/img/awards/award_pick.png
    Reason : Blocked by PUA blacklist
    That's probably related to what you said about crapware, although it seems to be just a picture .png ; hmm...

    PS: I have changed the link from http into hxxp (and it is put in plain tags).

    Does Windows "Copy To folder" and "Move To folder" is not suitable?

    Hi kaljukass,

    I for myself am mostly interested to get quickly a file (or folder) long and short filename and path by right clicking, and that is what Path Copy Copy does for me. I'm very happy with it (in the past I used Ninotech Path Copy 4 for that). Path Copy Copy can do more than that, but it are those features that I want and like. It has a settings menu where you choose what you want.

    Copy To folder

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\CopyToFolder]
    @="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"
    
    
    Move To folder

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\MoveToFolder]
    @="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"
    
    
    Copy these codes to Notepad and Save as => All Files (.*.) => Unicode =>CopyToFolder.reg
    and the second MoveToFolder.reg
    Then double click on file and OK - OK and done.
