Is there a way to lookup a file's location from within Illustrator? Something equivalent to File>Info>Location in Word, where it shows the location of the file on your computer?

I keep expecting to find it somewhere under File> File Info but the information there is far more technical and can't seem to see this under any of the tabs. I would really appreciate being able to access this info as sometimes my PC doesn't find things on search, and quite often I will leave a file open for so long I forget (still developing a filing system as I learn this program). Thank you for any insights on this...

If that is on a Mac, you can make the document window a floating window and then press Cmd and click the document title.

Unfortunately it is a PC. I tried the equivalent CTRL instead of Cmd but no luck. Thanks anyway! Hopefully something turns up, I keep feeling like I'm missing something obvious.
