Given a path such as "mydir/myfile.txt", how do I find the file's absolute path relative to the current working directory in Python? E.g. on Windows, I might end up with:

   "C:/example/cwd/mydir/myfile.txt"

There are many ways to get the file Path in Python some are as follows:-

  • You can import os library to use the method os.path.abspath() and paste the directory/file name.

 import os

 os.path.abspath("mydir/myfile.txt")  

  • You can use library pathlib to get an absolute path in Python :

from pathlib import Path 

p = Path("pythonw.exe").resolve() 

str(p)
