I know I've seen where one can select a file in the file directory, and see the entire address in a toolbar, or address bar, or in a command prompt box. This may have been a right click feature, or something from XP, but I lost that brain cell. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Yes, I would like to select an execute file, for example, and run it in a command box (dos). I am sure the path would be necessary. Thanks for helping me to clarify, if I did.

In CMD you would navigate to the .exe using the "CD" command. So for example, I have an .exe on my desktop, in cmd type "cd c:\Users\Kevin\Desktop" then simply type the name of your .exe and it should launch.
