    How to use File Explorer "Copy path" on command line?


    If I highlight files in File Explorer then select "Copy path", it will copy the path of one or more files to the clipboard. For example below I highlighted 3 files then selected "Copy path" which copied the path of the 3 files to the clipboard. Can someone explain to me how I could use these files from a command prompt? I'd love to be able to select several files, then open a Powershell terminal, and do something with them. I tried placing them in additional quotes, but that didn't work.

    I can copy files (specifically music files) to my WP8 device using Windows Explorer. However, I'd like to know if it is possible to access the path of the device using a command line, for example:

    copy c:\music\folders\music.mp3 <wp8 device path>\music

    Is it possible?
