retrieve pathes

instead of clicking through (sub) folders, you can copy the path
i.e.   X:\y\z   or  X:\y\z.xyz in the (1st) url field.

I'm thinking about to redesign the GUIs with the aim to get an highlighted path.

As a quick modification for the advanced GUI
Gui, Add, Edit, x294 y8 w55 h20 voaa, → Gui, Add, Edit, x294 y8 w55 h20 voaa,%copied%
Instead an empty 1st input field, the input field will show the highlighted path.
I use this solution too.

To retrieve pathes via a key combinations
the shortcut must start with a modifier key.
