Show the folder path in the title bar of Windows Explorer

How can I show the folder path in the title bar of Windows Explorer? I tried to switch to Classic view and check the "display full path" option under "Folder Options", but that did not work.
If there are no built in parameter to do this, anyone know of a good third-party plugin that will accomplish this?

Heh, after playing with my Google in terms of search, I found the answer to my own question!
There's a small utility called Aerobar that you can download here. It puts the full folder path in the title bar of Solution Explorer.

  • On the task bar of Windows Explorer post work without creating multiple instances of explorer.exe.

    Hi, I tried the workaround solution where you enter "%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}" in the target.  However, this doesn't seem to be a full working solution because it creates an instance of "explorer.exe" whenever you access.  I want a solution that allows me to open the 'Workstation' of the taskbar that creates instances fallacious "explorer.exe" (it should stay onlya singleinstance of explorer.exe).

    BTW, no, I don't want to pin 'my computer' icon so I have to hover over windows Explorer and then proceed to my computer.  I want the default location in Windows Explorer my computer and no libraries (which had the idea to do this? this person is a fool, because the majority of people never use libraries)


    Another alternative - using a VBScript script to launch my folder on the computer.

    Copy these lines into Notepad and save the file as "MyComputer.vbs".

    Set objShell = CreateObject
    objShell.ShellExecute "shell: MyComputerFolder ', ' ', ' ', 'open', 1

    Create a shortcut to the script including the full path, as below:

    C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe "D:\MyScripts\MyComp.vbs."

    Change the shortcut icon, and then PIN to the taskbar.

    How is it a better alternative?

    The script takes 3K of memory (max) and duly ends after launching the folder desktop. It's better than the original situation where each instance explorer.exe taking 20 + K of memory and not end automatically.

    The same thing happened to me! This problem is probabily caused by Acer
    eDataSecurity Management. This software MUST be installed (but does not
    to be initialized or setup) so that my solution work. Open an Explorer
    window, e.g. 'computer '. Right-click on an empty spot in the menu bar. You
    should see 'Acer eDataSecurity Management' is checked. Uncheck it. Now the
    menu bar should appear and disappear with the support of the [Alt] key.

  • How can I remove the menu bar in Windows Explorer?

    I have Windows 7 (x 64). In windows Explorer, the menu bar will not go if I press ALT. Also, I went into the menu "Organize" and went to "provision". Display of the menu bar has been disabled. I even checked "View" tab in the folder options and the display of the menu bar option is disabled here also. I tried to restart, but which did not help either. So, what should I do? The menu bar that bothers me a lot. So, ill reinstall windows if I can't find a way to remove it.

    So I guess the menu bar also refused to go when you were in safe mode.  If so, it narrows at least it down to a Windows problem.  If the system is free of any software malicious then the fault lies with Windows being corrupt.

    If SFC has reported no problems then only clean boot procedures could narrow things down to the component of Windows 7 that is the cause of the problem.

    You may find that the boot is too tedious & skip to what is called an in Place Upgrade or repair installation using your installation DVD. It's better than a reinstall full as it leaves your applications & intact user files.

  • Hide the title bar of internship to Director 11

    I just spent an hour looking Director forums to find out how to hide and show the title bar when the published projector is running.

    There were two suggestions.

    Window("stage").titlebarOptions.visible = false

    _movie.displayTemplate.titlebarOptions.visible = false

    Doesn't work for me. The projector always default to what was originally installed in properties.

    Once the projector works, is there a way to hide/show the title bar?


    It seems that this does not work if the _movie.scriptExecutionStyle is set to 9. Even after the setting of the scriptExecutionStyle at 10 when running (on a Mac, at least) I can't display the title bar. I tested it in a film initially set to 10 and the code window ("step"). titlebarOptions.visible = TRUE / FALSE works as expected. Implemented _movie.scriptExecutionStyle to 9, and then try again, it had no effect.

    I guess you would define scriptExecutionStyle at 11? I'm still using MX 2004 so I can't confirm this.

  • With 43 on Mac version in the title bar transparency disappeared, what happened?

    Before the upgrade to version 43, the title bar/app window was transparent to match Yosemite/El Capitan, and now it's over...

    I'm not using a theme, and I'm not in private browsing mode.

    By help on Reddit:

    This bug deleted dynamism (blur effect) in 44: the patch has been raised and then to 43.
    You should be able to bring back vitality by using a custom stylesheet:

    You can also get dark shine using - moz-mac-dynamism-black

  • How to hide the address bar when windows 'popup' fullscreening?

    Video player Sky TV has an implementation of bad full screen - you can make the player go true fullscreen, but it comes back when he loses focus, so I can't multitask on my two monitors.

    The best solution I found is to use their 'pop-out' reader, which opens a new "popup" - style window (locked address bar, no search bar etc) and I can't then full screen window itself (not the player). This allows me to hide

    -the outline of the window
    -the title bar of window
    -Windows Start menu

    and it remains enlarged when it loses focus.

    However, this does not hide the window address bar. On a larger window of Firefox at the normal address this slides out of sight after a short period. locked style "popup" window is not.

    On the offchance that treat differently the "pop-up" windows is a deliberate... Firefox security policy can I disable it?

    Well, this is embarrassing.

    I went to try to settle the dom.disable_window_open_feature.location from true to false.

    However, before doing so, I noticed that the address bar of the popup window was now floating as usual.

    I'll keep an eye on it in case it stops again, but for chalk now it up to the stupidity of the user.

  • Remove the address bar in Windows 7 Explorer


    I'm trying to completely remove the address bar in Windows 7 during the exploration of the files. I spent most of the day looking for a way to do this without success. I found the NoNavBar and NoAddressBar registry settings, but those that appear to work only for older versions of windows and I found a way to disable the breadcrumbs, but I want to remove the bar completely. Does anyone know of the registry tweak or the file that I needed to change it before you completely remove? In Windows XP , it's as simple as unchecking the box to the address at the top bar.


    Hi Mattya2006,

    You can not delete the address bar of Windows Explorer for Windows 7, this is the design.

    You can use your favorite search engine to find any third-party tool that will help you accomplish what you want.

    Note: Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • The title bar does not appear, it is not a menu option view

    I remember I once a title bar above the horizontal list of tabs, which shows the title of the currently opened tab. But it is not there now; and there is no option in the menu 'View' (which is, I think that I've seen it before) to add. What happens, and how to get the title bar back?

    You have this option on Mac in the palette to customize?

    You can enable or disable switch title bar via the "Title bar" button at the bottom left in the palette to customize window.

    Make sure that you run not Firefox mode full screen (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: Command + SHIFT + F).

  • Why the title bar on Firefox and the Windows 7 taskbar let distorted image when a list of folders crosses one or the other?

    I use a lot of folders in my bookmarks list. I noticed that with AMD and Nvidia cards based on video, that if I use a folder in my bookmarks list that a lot, a lot of bookmarks, the bookmark list will cross the box title bar of Firefox and the taskbar in Windows 7 and down. When this happens, the title bar on Firefox versions 8-10 and the taskbar at the bottom let images from the list of bookmarks which do not disappear (at least that I have use F11 mode full screen to clear away from the image and bring it back to normal). If I use a Matrox video card, it doesn't. Why is this?
