Full address in address bar:Is it possible to make the address show similar to XP ?

Is it possible to make the address show similar to XP (C:\Program Files\Adobe\....)?  It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (I would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "Computer").

Hi Jeff

You cannot change the behavior of the Address bar in Windows 7.

You can select to show the full path in the Title Bar, but only if you are using the Classic theme.

What you can do, is to click a blank spot in the Address Bar to show the path.

Example: Computer > C: > Program Files > Common Files > Services

Click in the Address Bar to see C:\Program Files\Common Files\Services

Hope this helps.

Thank You for using Windows 7
