When I’m working on a file, its name appears in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. That’s OK, but I sure would like Windows to identify not just the file’s name but its path also.
I never understood why Windows failed to take that extra step. As you can see in the screenshot below, Windows identifies the file only as c-TQA jan 06.doc , which means its name is c-TQA jan 06.doc and it’s a Word document.
Fortunately, there is a workaround for providing full path information and it works in all Windows applications. Click on Tools , Customize and the Commands tab. Then, under the Categories column, cursor down and highlight Web .
Under Commands , grab Address with your mouse and drag it up to a convenient spot at the top of the screen—being sure not to cover any other icons. And there you have it: the file and its full path (see screenshot below).
