You have a folder opened in Windows Explorer at some given path.

You know you're going to have to navigate to that path in an app you have opened, say, to save a file into that folder. So you click on the address bar, highlight all the text, then hit Ctrl-C to copy the path to the clipboard. You know you're not going to need that folder anymore, so you close that instance of Explorer.

You then switch to the app you have opened, hit File, Save As, click on the address bar just before pasting the path you have saved to the clipboard, and with the Ctrl key pressed down with all text in the address bar highlighted, ready to be replaced, you accidentally hit both C and V at almost the same time. Only, Ctrl-C got registered first. So you've just overwritten the "good" path on the clipboard with a path you don't care about, and Ctrl-V confirms that's exactly what you just did.

So now you have to navigate back to that deeply nested path again to save the file to the correct folder. Assuming you know exactly what it was, because you had already closed Explorer...
