Windows 7: How to show path in Windows Explorer / Windows Explorer Replacements?

How to show path in Windows Explorer / Windows Explorer Replacements?

Hello everyone,

I am working with my external HDD, on which I have placed most of my data files. Windows Explorer finds the files okay, but when I go to the file location, nowhere on the screen does it show the complete path of the file. [See attached screen capture to see what I am seeing.] I would like to know the full path of the file I am working with.

How can I either:

a) Make Windows Explorer display the complete path of the file; or

b) Use an alternative to Windows Explorer to do this?

If the latter, can you please suggest some good Windows Explorer replacements? I remember reading about a good one, but I cannot find the reference. So, suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the response. I tried this and it did not work. Basically, I just want it to show the complete path of a file in the search results in Windows Explorer, like it does when you are just 'browsing' files in Windows Explorer -- it shows the full and complete path at the top of the screen. But when a file comes up under a search result, it does not show that information on the screen.

This is the Directory when Doing a Search - the File path would be the File name added on along with it's Extension.

Or you can have Windows Display its File Path constantly - This only works with Windows Classic theme only

Or just Single click the Explorer Bar at the top to display the Current file path

Thank you to both logicearth and Shadowjk!

I went back to give you both 'rep' for your helpful input, but the icon for doing so is not there.

Just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your help!

Take good care,
