    HELP disabling Windows Explorer Address Bar in Win10


    Hi this may seem like a stupid question (I feel kind of stupid for asking it haha) but I need help DISABLING the address bar in windows explorer.

    I only need it to be temporary.

    The reason I need to disable the address bar is when I'm recording desktop screen-capture tutorials I don't want the viewer to be able to see my folder structure as there is some proprietary info in the folder names.

    So what I would like to be able to do is turn off the address bar before recording the video and then turn it back on afterwards. Honestly I don't really use it so I'm ok with leaving it turned off if necesary.

    I have found some examples of how to do this on previous windows versions but I can't find anything on how to do this for Windows 10.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Ace

    :)

  2. File Explorer crashing in Windows 10 since MArch 2016 update

    Hi all,

    I ran into the same issue a few days back, Windows Explorer would crash while opening or right clicking a certain folder (Windows 10), typing the folder address in the address bar would open it. I solved this issue as follows:

    - Disabled quick access (Via Explorer options in the General tab, uncheck both checkboxes under Privacy)

    - Disabled file preview (both the preview pane and the preview handlers, you can disable the preview handlers in the View tab)

    After doing this, I can open and right click the site without crashing the explorer.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Ranko

    This is going to sound strange, but the Address Bar on your Taskbar can be cleared from Windows File Explorer . . .

    Open Windows File Explorer

    At the top is the Address bar, right click and choose Delete History

    If you do not get "Delete History' in the right click menu, click somewhere else in File Explorer and then right click the Address bar again
