Thunar: what is hot key to display path (e.g. for copy)


Hello

In Thunar, there is a hotkey to display the current path in a text field. It is useful, for example, when wanting to paste the path for documentation. Known to be available in Thunar 1.0.1 if not earlier. What is it?

Best

Charles

What about View -> Location Selector -> Toolbar Style?

Thanks allend that does provide the required facility but a) requires more work and b) has to be put back if you want pathbar style.

There is a hotkey to do what I want; I used to use it regularly until a "senior moment" -- like standing at an ATM and realising you no longer know your PIN.

Found the answer at Thunar File Manager's Project WIKI in the Tips and Tricks section. It's Ctrl+L. Here's from the page
Quote:
Location/Path

Jump to a path:
  • by typing first / (start at root) or ~ (start at user home directory);
  • by opening the location box Ctrl+l (shows the current location)
Those shortcuts work in pathbar and in toolbar style. In the first it will open dialog boxes and in the second it will focus the address bar.
