Windows 7: Show Path in Windows Explorer

Show Path in Windows Explorer

I have set the folder selection to show the path in Windows Explorer as shown here.

Show Path in Windows Explorer-path.jpg

I then switched to the Microsoft Classic view and it still does not show the path in Windows Explorer.

Is there another way to do this?

Did you change to a classic theme under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization?

Yes I did and then rebooted just to make sure.

The screenshot clearly shows that you're still using an Aero theme. You must disable it for the title bar to show, it's a known bug in Explorer (and the options dialog tells about it).

As far as I remember, this bug has been fixed in Windows 8.

The other available option to have a working title bar and Aero enabled (other than downgrade to Windows 8 or 10) is to use the essential Classic Shell plugin that fixes this bug among many others and adds tons of features to the broken Windows Explorer.

At the time I took that screen shot I was NOT in the Microsoft Classic view.

Can you post a screenshot what you're seeing in Explorer right now?
