Shell extension for Windows allowing to copy the name of a file to the Clipboard, including the UNC and DOS name, catering to all user levels
The tool does not come with a setup pack. All you have to do is extract the program files to any location on the hard disk, open the context menu of the INF file, and click the "Install" option. The same steps are necessary for uninstalling ClipName.
From this point on, you can copy the name, path, DOS name, URL encoded name, or UNC name of any file or directory you select.
ClipName comes in handy for any user who frequently works with programs that require them to input the path of a file or folder, as it speeds up the entire process.
The small-sized application has minimal impact on system performance, running on a very low quantity of CPU and RAM. No error dialogs were shown in our testing, and the tool did not hang or crash. We have not encountered any kind of problems.
All in all, ClipName is a reliable piece of software for copying the path of a file or folder quickly and with minimum effort. Thanks to its overall simplicity, it can be handled even by users with little or no experience in software applications. Although it has not been updated for a long while, ClipName works well on later operating systems.
