SharePoint (O365), using the website: Is there a way to copy a file in the directory that you are currently in?

Now I do:

  1. select the file
  2. Copy to
  3. Current Library
  4. I now have to navigate to the correct directory... (<-- trying to avoid this!!)
  5. Copy here
  6. Select the new file
  7. Rename the file

The 'problem' is that Current Library starts at the root each time, so I have to browse and select the correct folder again in order to duplicate a file in that folder.


As a workaround, you could use "View in File Explorer" feature, then copy the files in the current folder.

  • this doesn't work in Edge, only in Internet Explorer... We don't use that old IE anymore. – juFo May 22 '19 at 7:22
