Now this is a feature she absolutely cannot live without. This was one of the best features added in Visual Studio 2005 (in her humble, biased opinion).

On the file tab channel, you can right-click and select Copy Full Path—voilà, you have the full path for that file.

In previous versions of Visual Studio (such as Visual Studio .NET 2003), you had to go to the Properties window and copy the full path from there. In even earlier versions, well, um, she doesn’t recall. (she started working at Microsoft in September 2001.)

Happy Programming! =)
