I want a feature in context-menu of filename:

If I click on a filename I want the option: copy full filename to clipboard:

So if I'm in the directory c:\a\b\c and the filename is d.txt, this option would copy "c:\a\b\c\d.txt" to clipboard.

thx

one thing you could do is download the following:

http://www.geocities.com/vitiris99/ctc.zip

extract the file "Copy To Clipboard.exe" and put in your "Send To" folder in c:\Documents & Settings\username\SendTo    - note that username is the username you are logged in as

Then, when you right click on a filename or folder and choose Send To...  then choose Copy To Clipboard - it copies to your clipboard.

the file isn't there and it's not exactly what I'm looking for (but if there's no other solution ...)

Another thing (to put it in your right-click without having to choose Send To...):

download the following:

http://www.geocities.com/vitiris99/ctc.zip

extract the file "Copy To Clipboard.exe" and put in your c:\windows\  directory

Then, in your registry add the following key (add keys as necessary)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Send To Clipboard\Command

In the Default value for Command, put the following:
"c:\Windows\Copy To Clipboard.exe" "%1"

this way, when you right click on a file, you'll see "Send To Clipboard".

Without downloading the DOS exe file, the only way I found is a script that opens up internet explorer application (hidden), then copies the text through IE scripting, but I figured having to open IE application each time you do this is crappy.

pitiful - sorry (geocities cut me off since I downloaded too much stuff this month) , download from here:

http://www.loria.fr/~szathmar/off/projects/C/CopyTextToClipboard/download/CopyTextToClipboard.zip

all you need from this zip file is the ctc.exe file.  (to follow the instructions above, you'll have to rename it to Copy To Clipboard.exe

sorry, you just need to add a key for "shell" - you should have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*
