Windows XP Explorer Tips

Display Folder Path in Explorer Title Bar

When you open a subfolder from Explorer in Windows XP, such as C:\Downloads\Graphics or C:\Multimedia Files\Graphics,
only the name of the subfolder, i.e. "Graphics", appears in the folder's title bar. If you have multiple folders on your computer with the same name, it may prove confusing to determine the full path of a particular opened folder. For
example, if the Taskbar contains two buttons representing a folder "Graphics", which button relates to which folder?

You can configure Explorer to show the full path in the folder's title bar. This way you can quickly glance at the window, or the folder's button on the Windows Taskbar, to see exactly which path is represented by a particular Explorer window.

  • Open My Computer.

  • Choose "Tools" then "Folder Options".

  • When the multi-tabbed dialog box appears, select the "View" tab.

  • Check "Display the full path in the title bar".

  • Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
