I've been trying to find a way to clone a file in SharePoint for a long time. All through the internet I could only see one way to do it - Right Click on the file > Select "Copy to" > Select destination folder > Click "Copy Here". But this seems to be a tedious process especially when your destination folder is way down the hierarchy starting from the root of "Current Library". 

 

Is there a way to create a copy or clone an existing file with a single click - probably some option called as "Clone" or "Copy in this folder" - that makes it easier?
