  • You mean when you copy using Shift + Right click and then "Copy as Path" ?

    AFAIK, it's not possible using the Shift + Right click.  What you can do is copy the path from the address bar.

  • Hi,

    I did a test. If I use Shift + Right click on a file/folder/application shortcut, then choose copy as path, the path will be copied with double-quotes.

    It’s same in Windows 7 and Windows 10.  It’s by design.

  • The address bar only shows the path to that folder, not to the file itself. So when I put links into email to specific files, I want the full path to open the file, not to the folder. I honestly have no idea why people want to copy the path with quotes. Can anyone tell me why it does this? What purpose do the quotes serve?

  • Why? What purpose do the double quotes serve? They prevent outlook from turning them into hyperlinks in an email.
