You can transfer paths to Powershell or the command prompt using drag & drop. In the command line, copying works via the context menu.

To do this, open the folder in Explorer and click on its name in the address bar with the left mouse button. Then hold the mouse button down and drag and drop the folder name into the command prompt or Powershell. Alternatively, you can click the name with the right mouse button, go to “Copy address” and then right-click on “Paste” to paste the path into the command prompt. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work with Powershell.
