How to show the full path in the Finder’s window title?

By default, the Finder shows the name of the current folder in its window’s title. This is OK in most cases. But what if you happend to have folders with identical names on your Mac, only they’re sitting in different parent folders? If you can only see the name of the folder in the Finder’s title bar, you’ll have to ⌘ click it to see which folder you’re currently in.

Display in Finder the full path of the folder

A better way is to make the Finder display the full path of the folder it is currently showing. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Launch ApplicationsUtilitiesTerminal.app
  2. Enter the following text:
    defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES
    and hit Enter.
  3. Enter killall Finder and hit Enter.

The Finder will relaunch and now display the full path to the current folder in its title bar. If you want to turn this off again, simply replace YES with NO in the above command.

Thats all tricks!
