What type of file is it?

Without know any thing about what you are doing.

As an initial thought you can use FileGetShortName or FileGetLongName to retrieve the info.

I am a Mac user coming from Applescript. In Applescript you just do something like this. It does not matter what type of file it is, it returns the whole name

Tell application "Finder"

set the_file to get name of item 1 of finder window 1

-- the result might be "The Grand Canyon.jpg"

end tell

#include <String.au3>

$_WinGetText = WinGetText("[ACTIVE]")

$__StringBetween = _StringBetween($_WinGetText, "Address: ", @LF)

$_FileFindFirstFile = FileFindFirstFile($__StringBetween[0] & "*.*")

If $_FileFindFirstFile <> -1 And Not @error Then
    $file = FileFindNextFile($_FileFindFirstFile)
    ConsoleWrite($file & @LF)
EndIf
