    How to Show Full Path in Address Bar of File Explorer in Windows 10


    File Explorer shows breadcrumbs in the address bar by default. Breadcrumbs display the hierarchy path of folders that were navigated to for the current folder location. Contextual navigation buttons are available for each of these that can be used to access all locations that are connected to them.

    Sometimes, you may just want to see the full path of the current folder location in the address bar instead.

    This tutorial will show you how to see the full path in the address bar of File Explorer on demand in Windows 10.

    Hats off. 5/5✩. Alt+D advice is well received (after goodness knows how many years we Windows 7 users)
