In the age of polished stone DOS there was very useful, though undocumented TRUENAME command:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DOS_commands#TRUENAME
https://www.robvanderwoude.com/truename.php

Running TRUENAME from some (mapped, substed, joined etc.) directory without arguments gave the physical path (the real name of current directory).

Now things get more and more overcomplicated…

zxy,
Please tell how do you want to use physical path: pass to other program, copy into clipboard, or?
Passing to another program may be done with %P%N, you can also open system properties of file using Alt+Enter, context menu or buttonbar command.

I got it, you are right, The %P%N works for the file but fails for the directory.
especially for the directory created by the VP command "<add"

Well, you only can create links to physical directories via <add command, simple copying creates virtual folders. And unfortunately there is no way to get physical path from TC, however you can open folder properties (system properties dialog appears) or execute folder by Ctrl+Enter + Enter, or by executing "." command after entering folder, and physical folder will be opened in Explorer.

Is there a way to have shift+enter behavior, open source file in new tab, but with the tab in the other panel?
