Windows 7: WinXP address bar in win7

WinXP address bar in win7

Hi,

How can I get the winXP address bar from My Computer in Windows 7?

So when I go to my computer and some folder it will say "c:\program files\folder1" for example. Instead of what it shows normally in Windows 7.


Thanks.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I am not sure what XP address bar looks like would you happen to have a screenshot of it?

Yes that is what I meant. But how do I get permanently and only like in the last picture?

Just like winXP.

I don't think you can get it permanently in Windows 7, as far as I know.
