Is there a way to show the complete path i.e. C:\user\documents\notes.txt on the address bar on Windows XP and Windows 7?
Thanks

I don't know if you can show the full path to a file like C:\user\documents\notes.txt.

You can do it for a folder, though.

In Windows Explorer... Tools, Folder options. View tab, check "Display the full path in the address
 bar," and click "Apply to all folders."

Had to look it up ...don't have xp anymore

1. Open any folder in Explorer.

2. Choose "Tools" then "Folder Options".

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

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

5. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
