This should be really easy for anyone that knows about adding a small app to Windows explorer.

I use a Mac with Windows 7 (x64) in a VM for my work, and other people here use a mix of Macs and PCs. As such, network paths get sent by email, and sometimes they're Mac and sometimes they're Windows.

I would really like to be able to right-click and copy a path, and have it automatically convert them. All this really means is replacing forward-slashes with back-slashes, and vice versa.

So if I have \\share\directory, I'd like to be able to right-click and copy as //share/directory, and vice versa.

Thanks!

Doesnt mousers CH&S have fancy scripting abilities these days?
Once setup, you would select the link and use a shortcut to convert. I know, it's not exactly what you requested - but worth suggesting anyway ;-) [edit] no, it doesnt copy the path... so not suitable that way, still, a possible solution for incoming paths [/edit]

Could only find a video and a thread for sharing scripts
