10.4: A simple way to copy the path to a file or folder
Authored by: rpitcairn on Oct 20, '07 02:54:36PM

option-command-space does nothing on my iMac.
I opened a spotlight window by using command-F2 and an empty window opened. Dragged some files in to the window, all rejected and no path shows up.

You're not very good at following instructions, are you

The hint says explicitly to "Drag ... to the Search box in the Spotlight Results window". The search box is the little box in the upper right. If you just drag it into the main part of the window, no, that wouldn't work. It has to be dragged to the "Search box".

I personally prefer the 4 line Applescript someone else posted. This method, while working, is kind of kludgey.

And yet, even dragging it to the aforementioned Search Box doesn't work. For one thing, the box gives no visible evidence that it's, well, excited? about having the pointer tip of the mouse dragging the folder hovering over it. And you drop... and nothing happens.
