Quickly Copy File/Folder Name To Clipboard & Paste With CopyFilenames Extension

Are you having a hard time in quickly copying the file name? The default method is quite tiresome in Windows, we have to first select the file, click Rename from right-click context menu, and use Ctrl+C combination to copy the file name. CopyFilenames does exactly what its name implies. It let users quickly copy the name of the file/folder to clipboard along with providing an option to paste it for renaming other file or folder name.

The right-click context menu support is seemingly essential in these types of utilities. It supports Windows shell integration to quickly copy the file/folder name from right-click context menu. The Paste Filename option helps in replacing the file/folder name. For this, select the folder/file and from context menu, select Paste Filename option to change the file name instantly.

  1. Warning: The delete function in this program can be dangerous.

    Using the Copy Filename and Delete function on a desktop shortcut actually copies the name of the .exe file referenced by the shortcut. And then the program deletes the .exe and the shortcut.

    Also there is no delete confirmation box. The ‘Using the Copy Filename and Delete’ command is directly adjacent to the ‘Copy Filename’ command on the context menu, making it easy to click the wrong command by accident, with disastrous consequences.

    Although this utility would have been very useful for me, I’m removing it from my PC before it does something irreparable! What a shame.
