    How to Show Full Path in Address Bar of File Explorer in Windows 10


    File Explorer shows breadcrumbs in the address bar by default. Breadcrumbs display the hierarchy path of folders that were navigated to for the current folder location. Contextual navigation buttons are available for each of these that can be used to access all locations that are connected to them.

    Sometimes, you may just want to see the full path of the current folder location in the address bar instead.

    This tutorial will show you how to see the full path in the address bar of File Explorer on demand in Windows 10.


    EXAMPLE: Breadcrumbs in address bar of File Explorer

    A) Press the Alt+D keys.

    B) Press the Ctrl+L keys.

    C) Click/tap on the icon in the address bar just to the left of the breadcrumbs. (see left/top screenshot below)

    D) Click/tap on an empty area in the address bar to the right of the breadcrumbs. (see right/bottom screenshot below)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    remove address bar file explorer

    Hi all,

    How do we remove the "Address bar" from "file explorer", while in "tablet mode"?

    This is for Windows 10 - Enterprise

    We tried the 2 steps below.

    1- This will work for the FullPath, but not FullPathAddress

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState

    FullPath and FullpathAddress

    0 = display name

    1 = display full path

    2- no luck with this one too.

    We tried the Offset trick 0018 from this article Explorer Menu Bar removal
