Send to clipboard as path or name
Well who hasn't used the windows 95 powertoys? One of the need features was "Send to Clipboard as..." which has copied the currently selected file or folder and copied the name or path of it to the clipboard.
With windows 7 just hold shift key while right clicking the selected files and you will find a new entry within the context menu "Copy as Path".
