Copying paths and URLs

To copy the full path of the selected local items to the clipboard, choose Edit > Copy.

The behavior of the Copy command for remote items depends on whether or not you are connected to a favorite that has a Root URL specified.

If you are not connected to a favorite, or are connected to a favorite which does not have a Root URL, the Copy command will place an ftp:// style URL on the clipboard. For protocols other than FTP, the URL will reflect the protocol in use.

If you are connected to a favorite with a Root URL, an http:// style URL will be placed on the clipboard.

To switch between secure https:// and insecure http:// URL types, right-click a file browser item and hold the ‘option’ keyboard key.
