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!

Hide full document way in Finder window titlebars

  • Stage 1: Launch Terminal on your Mac.
  • Stage 2: Paste the accompanying charge into the Terminal window and hit Return:

defaults compose com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle - bool NO;killall Finder

Here, we modify the defaults order to return the progressions and change to showing only the as of now chose envelope’s name in the window’s titlebar.

This is very the Finder handles window titlebars naturally. As should be obvious for yourself, seeing just the name of the at present chosen envelope in the window titlebar is of little use as the record is as of now featured in the Finder.

Notwithstanding your inclination of Finder window titlebars, there’s another cool trap to learn today: in the event that you hold the Control (⌃) or Command (⌘) key and left-tap the window’s titlebar, a convenient menu flies up with your organizer chain of importance.

It’s particularly helpful when you’re a few levels profound into an organizer and need to bounce to a particular parent envelope. Simply select a parent envelope in the menu and the Finder will take you in that spot, no compelling reason to physically explore your way back through various organizers.
