CTRL+SHIFT+Enter should insert an absolute file-path-name.

Like in old good Necromancer's DOS Navigator, I was liking seeing CTRL+Enter inserting the selected file name in the command line. But often I need to insert a fully qualified file name, including full path. In my old navigator this could be achieved by CTRL+SHIFT+Enter.

When I need that? For example, to compare two files, I often use FC program with two filenames as arguments. Put first file by CTRL+Enter from one panel, and then the second file by CTRL+SHIFT+Enter from the second panel. Then, return to the first panel and press Enter to launch comparison.

I didn't find how do do this trick in FAR Manager.

You can try: Ctlr+F
Then: Ctrl+;
Then: F1 - Keyboard reference - Command line
