Copy as Path missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm helping a user paste a list of files from Explorer into Excel but her machine doesn't have Copy Path As option listed when holding the Shift key + Right clicking the mouse.  Is there a patch or hotfix that will fix this?

  • There's a utility (which also works on Windows 7) here http://www.askvg.com/how-to-get-windows-vista-and-7s-copy-as-path-option-in-windows-xp-context-menu/

    May be of use if you can't get the native functionality to work.
