Did you know that in Windows Vista you can quickly copy the file name and path of a file, and put it into the Clipboard as text? Simply:

  1. Select the file in Explorer
  2. Hold ‘Shift’ and right-click
  3. Choose the ‘Copy as Path’ option

You can then use this to ‘paste’ into a hyperlink, for example, in Outlook. I found this at http://www.watchingthenet.com/copy-file-name-and-path-as-text-in-vista.html
