If you often use this utility, you can create a file list.

"Create" menu, "File listing"
Add an entry with {Folder name}\{Filename With Ext}
( a backslash as separator for Windows )


Select photos, then shift L , copy to clipboard ...

Yes, that works, thank you.

Is there a way to copy only the path with file name of a single image to the clip board (by keeping the other formats / lines here or without to first open that window(?):

Instead of "Copy to clipboard", you can use "preview", and a kind of notepad will open
There, you can copy only the entire filename.

But it needs more than one click.

If needed you can also add quotes : "{Directory}\{Filename With Ext}"


If you are using Windows, another way is to right-click on a file, choose "properties" , select the second tab "security" and copy the full name of the file

OK, that is good, either I can use your preview idea or the Win properties, yes, I am on Win 10.

And also thank you for the code line with quotes, very useful.

Ah, so on the html pages thumbs are shown then, that is very good. So you can use it for a gallery, I assume, online. But, where odes the information in the middle line come from? Somewhere from here, I guess:

I don't know if this helps but if you simply use CTRL+C on the file and CTRL+V to paste into notepad, you'll see that the path and file name gets pasted.

Unbelievable, yes, it works. If I remember it right I have tried that some days before and it didn't work, but now it does. May be it depends on the settings for the browser view, whether it works or not.

Thank you very much!
