Handy Windows shortcut

Sometimes it happens to me that I have to copy the path of a file to the clipboard and paste the it somewhere (console, visual studio, etc.); but it is not as easy to get the path as it is with folders where you can simply get it from windows explorer.
Windows has a hidden shortcut to get the path; when you press "shift" and click with the right mouse button on a file then in the context menu you get an additional entry which is called
"Als Pfad kopieren" or "Copy as path". Afterwards you can simply paste wherever you need it.
I find this feature extremely useful.
