CopyPath is a simple app that helps in a big way, by taking the hassle out of copying file paths to the clipboard.

CopyPath makes it easy to copy the full paths or file and directory names of the selected items, the frontmost Finder window, or the desktop.

CopyPath uses Growl, and flashes the menubar icon, to notify you when paths have been copied.


★★★★★ "As Subversion users here at the office, it has some crazy long paths sometimes. This app really helps generate them quickly for us."

★★★★★ "If you use the terminal to do any work, you need this little app..."

Great, and works in Yosemite

This is really great. Just click on the folder you want to copy the path of, and then click on the copy path icon in the menu bar on top of your screen.
To quit it just command click on the menu bar icon and select quit or prefs. I love this app.


If you are looking for a tool to copy terminal paths, this isn't it. It only copys POSIX paths. For names with spaces in them, you need to precede the space with an escape '\' symbol. For example, "/Volumes/External\ Hard\ Disk". Unfotunately you will get only "/Volumes/External Hard Disk" with this tool which won't work for terminal usage. The other reviews here must not deal with any names that have spaces in them.


I've been looking for this for years! Just made my life easier.
