    This means that the text that is the path of the file plus the file itself (the name of the file) will be copied.

    To check the buffer, we can simply create a new text document and then paste the buffer there
    .
    As we can see, "C:\Program Files (x86)\UltraISO\UltraISO.exe" path has been copied. This is useful for creating shortcuts or making notes in the shortcuts.

Questions and Answers

I would like to know how to copy the path of a network file?

I know that I can use copy as path, but it preserves relative shortcuts using this method. I would rather have the UNC path. Any notion on how to get this?
