That's exactly how file copy works!

Open Explorer, select a file or few and try this code

If Clipboard.ContainsFileDropList() Then
    For Each fn As String In Clipboard.GetFileDropList()
End If


You can use an Open File Dialog to select the file you want to copy and then on the Dialog Result you can add the following code:

FileCopy('File to Copy, 'Where You Want it To Copy To)
