You can get item properties using this command.

$itemID = "{8A87AC2B-210D-49F2-93FC-215918085418}" #Mention your Item ID

# Use Format-Table if you want to show results in the table view.
Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID "$itemID" | Format-Table -Property ID, Name, DisplayName, "Page Title", @{Label="Path"; Expression={$_.Paths.FullPath} }

# Use Show-ListView if you want to show result in a popup window 
Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID "$itemID" | Show-ListView -Property ID, Name, DisplayName, "Page Title", @{Label="Path"; Expression={$_.Paths.FullPath} }

The window will also give you the option to export. Like this.

You can get the path of Sitecore item through Powershell Script:-

Get-Item -Path "master:/sitecore/content/Home" | Show-ListView -Property `
    @{Label="ID"; Expression={$_.ID}},
    @{Label="Name"; Expression={$_.DisplayName}},
    @{Label="Path"; Expression={$_.Paths.Path}}

Update the path of Sitecore item "master:/sitecore/content/Home". To get the path of item, Click on the item in Sitecore Content tree and have a look at the Quick info tab and copy the Item path.

If you have the item as a variable and just want the Sitecore path, it is simple:

$item = Get-Item master:/content/home
Write-Host "Item path: " $item.FullPath    

It will give following output

Item path: /sitecore/content/Home

We can get item by Id and access all item property like this.

$item = Get-Item -Path  master: -ID {110D559F-DEA5-42EA-9C1C-8A5DF7E70EF9}
Write-Host $item.Paths.Path

In Sitecore, there are multiple ways to fetch the path of an item. Here are some common methods:

Using Item.Paths.Path Property:

This is the most straightforward way. You can access the Paths.Path property of the item object to get its path.

string itemPath = item.Paths.Path;

Using Item.Paths.FullPath Property:

Similar to Paths.Path, Paths.FullPath property returns the full path of the item, including the root node.

string fullPath = item.Paths.FullPath;

Using Item.Paths.GetPath(string itemPath):

You can use the Paths.GetPath method to get the path of an item based on a specific path format.

string path = item.Paths.GetPath("slash", true);

Using Item.Paths.GetAncestorOrSelfPaths():

This method returns an array of ancestor paths and the item's own path.

string[] paths = item.Paths.GetAncestorOrSelfPaths();

Using Item.Paths.GetParentPath():

This method returns the parent path of the item.

string parentPath = item.Paths.GetParentPath();

Using Item.Paths.LongID Property:

This returns the long ID of the item, which includes the full path.

string longId = item.Paths.LongID;

These methods provide flexibility depending on your specific use case. You can choose the one that best fits your requirements.
