On my PC the "copy as path" you show is accessed by holding down the shift key while right clicking.

This link will take you to a web page with details and a download set up to add copy name and/or copy path to the context menu.

To get "Copy as path" in the context menu, press SHIFT and hold while right clicking.

Theres no "Copy name" menu but what you can do is right click, then click on Properties, then highlight the name of the folder/file and press Ctrl-C or right click and select copy.

Are there any down loadable registry patch for that?

KillerBee, There's one on the link I provided, scroll down the page a bit (or a lot!!). It's under the "How To Install" paragraph header.

fimble, very nice. I created both .reg files, merged them and I now have Copy File Name and Copy File Path on the right click context menu.

Thank you (even though I'm not the one that asked)

Glad to have helped!

I added
Code:
"Extended"=""
to my reg entries so they're in the shift r-click menu seeing as how I don't use them all the time, but often enough to make the addition handy.
