Word Week – Adding Path And Filename To Documents


Propellerhead’s Word Week is drawing to a close and to round off we’ve come up with a couple of real stonkers  Recent versions of Word let you add a line at the top or bottom of the page showing the document’s path and filename but this tip goes one better. Not only does it display the documents location on your computer on the Word toolbar, you can insert it anywhere you like in the text. This trick makes use of Word’s hidden web-browser features and the first step is to right-click on an empty area of the toolbar, select Customize then the Commands tab; scroll down the Categories list and click on All Commands. Now scroll down the Commands list to Web Address, left click and hold on the icon and address bar and drag and drop it onto the end of your toolbar. Exit the Customize dialogue box and the web address bar will now display your open document’s path and filename. Now all you have to do is click on the line to highlight it then copy (Ctrl + C) and paste (Ctrl + V) it anywhere you want in your document. Don’t forget there are hundreds more great tips on the BootLog website at www.rickmaybury.com
