I know that the TaskList command show the currently running tasks but it does not show the full pathname.

Is there a way to do it?

Process Viewer for Windows has a command-line PV.EXE that will show full paths when used with the -v option

firefox.exe         1016 Normal   C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
taskmgr.exe         1872 High     C:\Windows\system32\taskmgr.exe
wuauclt.exe         3796 Normal   C:\Windows\system32\wuauclt.exe
explorer.exe        2196 Normal   C:\Windows\explorer.exe
cmd.exe             4972 Normal   C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe

Powershell can do this:

get-process | get-item -erroraction silentlycontinue | format-table name, directory

TLIST used to do that, but it was replaced. Read This

Here is an app that will do it, but it's not a command window app.
