you can collect highlighted text in a text file i.e. @ collected.txt on the desktop.
If you highlight files or folders, you will get a list with the pathes, every path in a new line.
I use this function to add notes to my script file, sometimes up to 100 lines, until i remove them to a different file
; trigger F2
;empties the clipboard
;sends ctrl + c
FileAppend , `n; %clipboard%, %A_ScriptFullPath%
; important is the semicolon after new line `n
*collect in the desktop file collect.txt via the downloadable files
~lalt & c:: ;shortcut ALT + C
clipboard= ;empties the clipboard
send ^c ; sends copy
FileAppend , `n%clipboard%, %userprofile%\desktop\collected.txt ;`n =new line
* the wayS to activate the collect.ahk script
→dragNdrop collected.ahk onto
→click collected.ahk + select in the "open with" dialog box
or if you want to learn more about ahk scripts
→click and replace the sample code →save →click again the exe
OPTION : reload
in a line before return will reload the script
1) you will see in in the system tray the success of the collect thread →disappearing/appearing tray icon
2) you can reload the script with the copy hotkey or shortcut, but it requiers that you highlight at least a whitespace.
Disadvantage : a useless line "; ..." added to the file
