    Text on windows title bar doesn't show


    First, sorry for my English, it's not my first language.

    After tweaking to change theme for Windows 10 (including patching using UxStyle), I've just realize I can't see text on window title bar. It usually displays file path such as, C:\Windows\system32\somefile.txt which is important to me, unfortunately, I can't retrace where I went wrong. Would you help me how I can restore those text back? Thanks a lot.

    Have you modded the theme you are using?

    Open "Old/New Explorer", which usually comes with Patch Kits, and uncheck "Hide Title Text"

    Yes, I have, but I forgot which one, because I kind of try some of them.

    Load a normal theme. Does the problem go away?

    No, title bar doesn't change also, thus, the title bar text doesn't too.

    I tried to create another user, and in that user, there is the title bar text. I think from that, I can assume that it happens only on my account.

    Try a Clean Boot, see if the title bar is okay. If yes then something is starting for you that is causing the problem. Follow the instructions in the tutorial to resolve it.
