ExplorerGenie – The program is an open source extension to the context menu of the Windows explorer, which allows to copy the path of a file to the clipboard, or to open tools like the Command Line. The menu is configurable, so that you get those functions you really need.
Here’s what ExplorerGenie can do for you
Straight off the bat, it’s worth noting that ExplorerGenie is not the most feature-packed context menu tool out there. However, what it is, is a remarkably user-friendly tool that smoothly integrates with Windows Explorer.
With the help of this app, you can effortlessly copy the path of any file to the clipboard in various formats. For example, you can copy the path as a link and insert it directly into your emails or documents with just a few mouse clicks. You can also copy the path as an HTML path, as a C/C++ syntax entry, or as URI (uniform resource identifier).
It can also help you calculate file hashes, quite useful if you’re in the habit of verifying the integrity of downloaded files. The list of hashing algorithms includes MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, and RIPEMD-160.
Wait, there’s more
There’s also something that ExplorerGenie brings that might make it a favorite among developers or users who often rely on command-line tools. The app makes it a lot easier to open tools like the Command-Line or Power Shell directly from the context menu.
The list of options includes Command Prompt (and Command Prompt as admin), Power Shell (and as admin), and Windows Explorer (also available as admin).
The feature list and the overall quality of the design recommend ExplorerGenie as a handy context menu tool. It may not be the most versatile tool of this sort, but if you often rely on command-line tools, and you like verifying files you download via hashes, then ExplorerGenie is definitely an app you should consider installing.
