You can use StartExplorer:

  • free Eclipse Plug-in
  • Windows, Mac OS, Linux
  • straightforward to install (just drag-and-drop the button to the Eclipse menu bar to install the plug-in)
  • accessible via right click or keyboard shortcut
  • add “open the current folder in a file browser” feature as well as open a shell there and copy filepath in clipboard:
