There are times, when working on an Office document, that you might forget where you saved the file. If you need to find out where the currently open document is located, you can use Save As to find out. However, there is a quicker way.

This is a great tip. I'll poke around a bit, it seems like there is a lot of good stuff in the "commands not in the ribbon" area. This is almost the feature that I've often thought should be baked into office: there should be a "save and copy file to the clipboard" option. I find myself creating documents that are to be emailed as attachments pretty regularly. If that email is a reply or forward, the Save & Send tool isn't very helpful; I still have to save then browse to the file in explorer. Save & Copy would be much more useful/powerful.

Seriously? For the few times you do need this simply doing a "File | Save as" provides the answer and doesn't clog up the screen real estate...

In 2010, it's a simple case of clicking File and it's right there infront of you, the entire file path.
Why they didn't keep that is beyond me.

Actually, you are entirely correct and it's still right there in 2013. It's in the new, easier to read but less useful double chevron format, i.e. "Dropbox >> Shares >> UFJ", but if you copy and paste it it works fine.
