My "Copy as Path" shortcut that appears when I right-click on a file or folder in Windows Explorer no longer works. I get the following error message every time. Please help me correct this error and thanks in advance. Here's the error message:

"This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page."

Windows doesn't have a "copy path" feature. Your menu item is probably added by some third party software.
Actually, it does. (I did not know this either, and no Registry edit to make it appear)

Find a file, SHIFT+Right click.
Copy as Path
Paste into Notepad or similar.

Doing that gives me the exact same error message that I get through the registry shortcut.
