Windows 7: Documents Library: show full paths

Documents Library: show full paths

I am going through the library to make sure the files it contains are all in the correct folders. I have set Explorer to show full paths, yet when I open the library the file names are still shown as before.

Is there any way the full path can be made imediately visible without need to go to Properties?

It would make the process much quicker.

Hi,

I'm not sure I understand your question. Can you post an image to show us what you mean by "shown as before"?

Hello Rundwald,

I think you may be wanting to add the Folder path column in order to see this. If so, the tutorial below will help show you how to. You will need to be in Details view, and have Group by set to (none) to see it though.

Windows Explorer Columns - Add or Remove

Hope this helps,
Shawn

If you have selected to view full paths in Folder Options you need the Classic theme selected:
