Get back to "Classic" or copy/paste file path

I need alot of times to copy & past the path.. So I got W7 to show the full path under the tools file options.. But it states ther it will only work in classic mode.

I can't find how to get back to classic mode, or if there is another way to copy/paste a file path, I'm all ears.

Click in the address bar...or right click any file folder > Copy as path.

Thanks, I found something very close to your info..

Hit <shift key> + file or folder then choose copy as path..

Maybe a different setup.. but without the shift, I don't see the option to copy as path.

So what is wrong with click on the address bar? It will automatically select all the text for you.
And I did mean to say "shift+right-click"
