WinXP address bar in win7

Hi,

How can I get the winXP address bar from My Computer in win7?

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 win7.


Thanks.

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.
