In XP, what is the best way to determine the folder of a file, i.e. to determine the full path of the file?

Hi,

Can you explain a little better what you want to do?

A script? A shell extension for that?

The problem arises like this: I want to note the full path of a Word document that I am viewing. I see the file name (say Milk.doc) at the top of the screen. But I don't know its full path, i.e., its folder.

What is the best way to determine that folder?

Thanks for your interest.

If you Click on File then Save As, the Save As dialog will show you where the file is located. Just cancel it once you have the info.

Not me but Ztruker :)

Usually inside the Office applications there is some option to check the file properties where the file path is presented.

Example using Office 2007
