Windows 7: Right Click Bread Crumbs

Right Click Bread Crumbs

If this is elsewhere in the forum, please understand that I am fundamentally lazy. Which makes this find so cool for me. It may be important to note that I use Classic mode/theme exclusively.

Right click the bread crumbs. "Edit address" brings up the old address bar. "Copy Path as Text" - cool! Now I don't have to figure out how to force the Shift+Right Click Copy Path reveal as a stanard context menu option.

I have no idea what the "Copy Address" does.

""Delete History" - I clicked that one and now I can't remember anyone named George.

"Copy address" appears to do the same thing as "copy address as text"

Also if you click to the right of the bread crumbs, it's the same as the "Edit Address" menu option. I do like that feature.

'Copy Address As Text' creates a text string of the path.

'Copy Address
' also does the same thing and it also lets you copy the entire contents of the current folder into another location

basically the 2nds also allows for copying and pasting of a folder, except from the breadcrumbs, rather than toggling the folder, right clicking and hitting copy.

All of these improvements in usability and productivity are starting to make me think that Windows 7 doesn't suck after all.

I really did spend a few hours trying to force Copy Path into the context menu, epecially without the quotation marks. That is one diff in the two methods.

7im, please post a mind meld link at your Jolly Green Giant site.

Bread crumbs refers to each part of the file path in windows explorer. In W7 they are active, you can click on them and quickly change directories.

Bread Machine
After the maintenance man gave me a loaf of bread from his new bread machine a few days back, I was surprised that I enjoyed it a lot, because it was white bread, which normally I don't care for at all. That inspired me to buy a bread machine for myself, but since I know absolutely nothing about...

Baking Bread
I would like to hear from some of the other members (especially from some of the members who not live in the USA) concerning baking bread. First I'll start with a question. How many of you who have baked bread use sugar as one of the ingredients? The reason I ask is because virtually all of the...
