Default Very useful function for power users!

Navigate to any file in windows explorer, hold the left shift key and right click on that file, then click copy as path.

I didn't know about this til 2 minutes ago and here I was typing in paths by hand...

But if you're already right clicking on that file in windows explorer doesn't that mean you are already there?
