    Windows 10 explorer not displaying correct network path in title bar


    While there are many things I do like about Windows 10 compared to earlier versions I find it very disconcerting that explorer does not display the correct network path in the title bar. So For the actual path "\\server\documents" I am seeing "This PC > Documents". For me it is always critical I am looking in the right location otherwise there can be serious unwanted consequences. Does anyone know how I can force explorer in Windows 10 to always show the correct path and so avoid any confusion?

    Absolutely - I have had this setting active for oodles of versions of windows. It's one of the first changes I make when reloading windows. My problem is it is showing incorrectly in Windows 10 for all files on the server. Only when I click into it does it show the correct path usually in the blue selected text mode. When I leave the title bar it goes back to "This PC > Documents". I wonder how it is yours shows as > network > etc!

    Although I notice that it would appear your server name is "MYBOOKLIVE" looking at the top area you've drawn around in red. Yet it reverts to "> Network > MYBOOKLIVE > Public" - that's what I loath about the Windows 10 explorer address bar. I like wysiwyg to work both ways!

    Do you run any Tweaks program for your system?
    Edit: you can also check in registry, if correct option is selected. Check Tutorials by Brink.
