Show File Path in Excel

If you want to see where your Excel file is located on the computer or the server, you can display the file path in the Quick Access Toolbar. With the file path displayed here, you can also copy and paste it into an e-mail and send it to a colleague (provided they have access to the same server). A great way to avoid sending attachments!
