Windows 7: View Full Path-File Location?

View Full Path-File Location?

Sometimes, various things pertaining to one subject (topic) get scattered around in different locations. Then I want to consolidate them and put them all in one file.
Here, for example, a search shows a lot of recipes, pictures, documents etc. that are about spaghetti and I want to put them all in one file that I will call Spaghetti Master.
If I select everything (except Spaghetti Master) and try to move them to the master file, there will be all kinds of duplication problems. If I could see the full paths of everything, I could avoid trying to put things in the master file that are already in it and avoid this problem.

But as shown in the screen shots, the properties box is too small to show the full paths and selecting an item in search doesn't show its path.

How can I get the full path to display when I select the items?

I'd suggest using TSR Copy Changed Files using "Compare Content" option:

If you want to see file path - hold Shift+Right Click then choose "copy as path" then paste to notepad or similar.

Or right click the address bar and choose "copy as....."
