copy to clipboard path / file name using shortnames


Could we have another set of copy to clipboard options using shortnames for path / file name etc ?

this would be useful when passing parms to a program in a bat file when the parm is a full path/filename and it has embedded spaces in the path.

Mathias (Author):
I might be able to add that.. problem with shortname are that they are legacy and are not always available. It is a feature many turn off to improve filesystem performance.
Also windows 10 is disabling it by default for none system partitions.

If parameters have spaces you should really use " around the parameter instead relying on 8.3 names. you are just asking for problem down the line.
