[Geek Tip] – Avoid typing long file path name in command window

Problem:

You need to reference a filename in the Run box or Command Window but don’t want to have to type out a long pathname.

Solution:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the file you need to reference.
  2. Open the Run box or Command Window
  3. Drag the file from the explorer window to the run box or command window.

You now have the full path and filename ready to use. No more typing!
