Show full path in Title Bar and Address Bar

This tweak lets you show the complete folder/directory path, you are currently placed at, in the Title Bar and Address Bar of the folder.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
In Windows Explorer or My Computer, you can set to display the full path in the Title Bar and Address Bar. The complete path refers to the directory or folder location that you are currently looking at. If the full path is shown in the Address Bar then you’re able to type it in the Address Bar just as you can in your Web browser. Similarly, displaying complete path in the Title Bar is useful if you have several explorer windows open often. The text that shows up in the title bar also shows up in the taskbar icon when explorer is minimized.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a DWORD value “FullPath” and “FullPathAddress”, if they do not exist.

Now, right-click and modify the value to “1”, which can show full paths. However, if you want to get back to the original state, change the value to “0” or delete the value names.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.

NOTE:
In Windows 98 only registry value ‘FullPath’ can work.
