Re: Identifying the folder of a doc

So there’s no “location” listed in the general tab?

 

Sorry it’s getting repetitive, I just have never seen anything like this and can’t even understand how this could be happening.

No, it just shows the file name without the path.

That’s curious. It just doesn’t show up in the box with the other properties?

I shouldn't have just written that the properties don't work for me.

I meant that they don't work for me to get the path, unless the file is open.

We’re talking about file/Windows  explorer right?

It has worked the same since at least Windows 98.

You should be able to navigate to a file using arrows, first letter navigation, or whatever.

The file should then be selected.

If you hit alt-enter there, the properties box should open, containing the various tabs (that part is different as there used to be only two or so in old versions of windows). From there, you can use JAWS cursor, insert-b, virtualise window, or whatever you need.

Checking drive properties within explorer should work basically the same way.

The properties don't work for me unless the file in question is open.

But when the file is open and under the File menu, and in that properties, you may need to do shift + control + Tab to get to the General window, mine did not open in General properties, or otherwise, shift + tab to the title of the window and left arrow to General.

It is there that I get the path.

Did you try alt-enter to see the properties of the file?

 

When I use the explorer search box to find a file, and press the applications key, I see both “open file location” and “properties” near the very bottom of the list. What happens when you press up arrow once or twice?

Reed, the issue seems to be that neither the aps key or shift f10 give me anything but things like; cut paste select all so I am stuck.

When you have your search result, rather than opening the file, hit Alt-Enter to view the properties of the file and you will find its file location.  Or, the long way, hit Shift+f10 and arrow around until you find properties.

 

Hope this is correct?

Hi Glenn,

 

No such thing as, Stupid Obvious!  There's just too many ways of doing various tasks' and having lists' like this helps us keep on our toes, so we're reminded of things we've forgotten or learn new ways.  Way back when after I first joined this list, I had so many questions, I think I drove David & Rick nuts!  LOL  But, back then I would always tell people, There's no such thing as a stupid question, the only stupid question is the question that isn't asked!  BTW, I'm running Windows 7 Pro, Outlook Express, & J16.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Well, that was stupid obvious.

I wish I had thought of that.

I think you can do control + C when you are on top of it in the search list.

good catch Mike.

Hi Wayne,

 

Something you can try is, when you do a search, and you find the file copy it and put it somewhere that you can / know where it's located until you figure out where it was at.  Or, with this file highlighted press, Shift + F10, to open the extended context menu, find the, Copy Path, option or something similar and press enter.  This will copy the file path to the clipboard, now paste into Notepad to see where it's located.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hello- 

I did a search for an old MS Word doc from several years ago and opened it but I do not know which folder it came from. I have Windows 7 and MS Word 2007 and wondered if there is a way to locate the folder that the document came from?
