Windows 7: Show full path in jumplists

Show full path in jumplists

Hi,

Thanks to everyone who helped with my previous question!

New question: Is there a way to get jumplists (especially Windows Explorer) to show the full path of each folder, or at least enough to differentiate similarly named folders?

For instance, at work, every project I work on gets a new folder. Within each project folder, I create 3 other subfolders (say Excel, Original Files, Updates). These folders always have the same name exactly and that makes it difficult to identify them in the jumplist (addmitedly if I hover over them I get the full path).

Thanks,
Ariel

Hi Ariel, this method doesn't give you an immediate display of the path, but it does allow you to copy it into a doc:

FROM START MENU
Start Menu, All Programs, highlight program + right-click on it, select Properties, Shortcut, Target (shows actual file path NOT the shortcut path!)

FROM WINDOWS EXPLORER
Open Windows Explorer, highlight the file, and press Shift + right-click mouse.
Select: Copy as path.
Open a Word page and select: Paste.
The path of the file will be pasted in the Word doc.

FROM THE TASKBAR – (FOR A FILE PINNED TO TASKBAR OR IN JUMP LISTS OR QUICK LAUNCH)
Be sure the program is not running at the time.
Hold the Shift key while right-clicking the pinned shortcut.
This will bring up the full Context Menu.
Select: Copy as path.
Open a Word page and select: Paste.
The path of the file will be pasted into the Word doc.

Hi Imperfect1,

Thanks for posting.

What I need though is to see at a glance which is the right folder in the jumplist. It wouldn't help to have to paste it into Word.

In fact there's a quicker method to see the path, and that is to hover the moust over the folder.

But I would like the jumplist to actually show the full path by default.

Thanks,
Ariel
