10.4: A simple way to copy the path to a file or folder
Authored by: jhaslam on Jan 04, '08 03:24:34PM

Don't know if this works in 10.4 but it seems to work in 10.5:

1. Click on the file or folder you want the path for
2. Click on 'Finder' in the menu bar
3. 'Services'
4. 'TextEdit'
5. 'New Window containing Selection'

A TextEdit window opens with the text (hyperlink) of the path, e.g. /Users/Jim/Music/file.mp3

Quite quick and easy!
