Get current directory in max 2 clicks

Post by *awa5114 » 2019-07-03, 09:15 UTC

Is there any way to just get the current directory using Total Commander? Using Mark>Copy names with path to clipboard I get the path but it includes the filename, which I must subsequently delete whenever I paste the path elsewhere. To circumvent this, one must go up to the parent directory, select it and then go to Mark>Copy names with path to clipboard. Then one must navigate back into the directory they were already in. In windows explorer this can be achieved with one click and then Ctrl+C.

Is there any way to get the current directory using the Total Commander, preferably in 2 clicks or less? Thanks!

There are a few ways.

For example, try clicking into the address bar to make it editable and copy that.




@all: what other ways do you use?

Yes, that does the trick. It is similar to windows explorer in a way then. Just you have to wait between the two clicks in the address bar. Similar to a file rename.

I think this will work for me.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Mark>Copy names with path to clipboard
>>>> x:\totalcmd\TOTALCMD.INC >>> cm_CopyFullNamesToClip=2018;Copy names with full path



And there in TOTALCMD.INC is f.ex. too:
cm_CopySrcPathToClip=2029;Copy source path to clipboard
cm_CopyTrgPathToClip=2030;Copy target path to clipboard


So you can use cm_CopySrcPathToClip as command for an button.
Or for a "user defined command", which you can also use as command for an button and also create an keyboard shortcut to.
