How to save paths from Search results in Windows Explorer

From time to time I want to document location(s) of some file on my system. I usually use Total Commander which has built-in functionality of copying the paths of selected files but it is possible to achieve the same in good old Windows Explorer. Once search is complete and all results are displayed, select them all with CTRL+A, hold down SHIFT key and do the right click anywhere on the selection. In the context menu which appears, find and click on Copy as path. All paths are now copied in the clipboard.


Now I can paste all paths:


"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ucrtbase.dll"
"C:\Windows\WinSxS\wow64_microsoft-windows-ucrt_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.16299.15_none_d9020b8bbf051ead\ucrtbase.dll"
"C:\Windows\System32\ucrtbase.dll"
"C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-ucrt_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.16299.15_none_cead61398aa45cb2\ucrtbase.dll"
"C:\Windows\System32\ucrtbase_enclave.dll"
"C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-onecore-i..atedusermode-common_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.16299.15_none_215b207fb180b0b9\ucrtbase_enclave.dll"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 15.0\Team Tools\Performance Tools\ucrtbase.dll"
