    Windows 11 File Explorer "Display the full path in the title bar" does not work


    I am using Windows 11 Pro, version 23H2.I would like the file explorer to always display the proper path when viewing a folder, and the "Display the full path in the title bar" option only works for a few folders.For example my Downloads folder only ever displays "Downloads" in both the tab and the address bar: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AnwFGmqzskNMvmxnI5WyMEQT5xgz?e=QF97goHowever, my Documents folder properly displays the path in the tab, and displays the full path in the address bar when clicked:https://1drv.ms/i/s!AnwFGmqzskNMvms59OXF-DuYhnX6?e=L1AkDBBoth of these folders have the "Display the fu

  3. How to have full path always show in Address bar in file explorer?

    Hi

    Welcome to Microsoft community.

    You can change the Windows 11 File Explorer address bar to show the full file path by following these steps:

    1. Open File Explorer.
    2. Click on the three-dot menu icon located at the top right of the window.
    3. Click on 'Options'.
    4. In the 'Folder Options' window that appears, go to the 'View' tab.
    5. In the 'Advanced settings' list, find and check the 'Display the full path in the title bar' option.
    6. Click 'Apply', then 'OK'.

    Please let me know how it goes, or if you need further assistance.

    Best regards

  4. Windows 11 File Explorer "Display the full path in the title bar" does not work

    Windows Explorer will not display the full path in the title bar

    In Windows Explorer, when I choose Downloads from the left column, I want this to appear in the title bar:

    C:\Users\MyUser\Downloads

    What I currently see is either just the word Downloads or the phrase "My PC > Downloads"

    It does not work to check the box in View Options that says "Display the full path in the title bar", that's checked and it does not work, on my home computer or my work computer (Windows 10 Home / Windows 10 Enterprise).

    How can I always display the full path in the title bar for "special" folders that get aliased, like Downloads, and Documents?
