Editors' Review

+
This simple yet very handy utility lets users quickly copy full file or folder paths with the click of a mouse. ClipPatch lacks a dedicated interface per se, as it integrates directly into Windows Explorer's right-click menu and offers three options for copying path information to the Clipboard. The first two differ only in the presence of the forward or back slash after the drive letter, while the third creates a link to the file or folder than can be pasted into Outlook. One nice feature is the ability to select multiple files in a folder. In that case, file paths are separated by semicolons or stacked when pasted as links. We should note that you'll need to read the text file before installing the application, as it's not immediately clear how to do so. Otherwise, this totally free and functional utility strikes us as a convenient little pick-up.

"Allows for use of filename-path adequately."

September 04, 2011  |  By aeiou.stem.nr

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

Path (of file) is put to clipboard from right-click menu.

Cons

No great problems.

Summary

This addition to a power-user's experience has been long missed. And welcome addition to Windows.

"This is one of my most valuable utilities."

February 21, 2009  |  By ruthbernstein

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

When I need to identify the path of a certain file, this eliminates much searching to record the location of the file. Thank you !!!!!

Cons

The reference to / and \ might be confusing to a newbie. Once you understand one is for one is for drive path and the other is for web addresses, it's simple.

"Works Great in 32-Bit XP and Vista but not in x64 Vista"

January 20, 2009  |  By bmn_1213

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

Have been using this for some time on 32-bit XP and Vista and love it. Easy to install and simple to use.

Cons

However when I upgraded one of my machines to x64 Vista I found I couldn't install it.

Summary

Great for 32-bit XP and Vista but not for x64 Vista. In x64 Vista I found out that it includes its own version of clip path. After you click on a folder or file you can hold the shift key and then right click and select "Copy as Path". Then you can paste the path into word or excel. This works for multiple files/folders as well!!

"What every OS should have built in"

June 05, 2008  |  By wlsmith

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

This tool so perfectly meets an obvious need that no Operating System should be without it. MS should have thought of it.

Cons

The menu could provide a clue about which direction you might want your slash to lean, left or right. Just offering me "/" or "\" forces me to think too much.

"Perfect, useful simplicity!"

November 29, 2007  |  By lisact

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

This is an extremely lightweight, useful little program. I use it daily when I'm browsing for files, uploading, or sending file paths through email. The "paste in Outlook" option is a huge improvement over the older version of ClipPath!

"Very Useful - especially when you want to upload files"

November 27, 2007  |  By tk_cnet

 |  Version: ClipPath 2.1

Pros

I use it almost all the time when I have to attach files in yahoo mail or any mail software. Simply clip the path of the file and paste it in the box where you are asked for attachment's path+filename.

Cons

I would like to see a shortcut key combination along with the mouse to clip path.
