Show Path in Windows Explorer

I want to be able to see the path in Windows Explore. I have checked the box in Folder Options to do just that, but it still does not show the path.

Any suggestions??

Hello Huffman, :)

It appears that showing the full path in the title bar of Windows Explorer only works if you are using the "Classic theme".

Probably a bug in Win 7. I don't have the Classic Theme. I have the command in Classic Shell4 + a command called "Copy as path."

I remember in Win XP that I did "Display full path" endlessly, because it wouldn't stick.
