    Hi,
    Ive been using Vista quite a lot recently and really appreciate the feature of adding the current folder directory in the address bar. Is there any way of doing something similar with XP? I currently use the tree in the 'Folders' explorer bar but I have many folders with very similar contents (web design) and it would be really useful to be able to check that im looking at the folder I want to by using the Vista style address bar tree.

    cheers in advance for any ideas.

    Control Panel | Folder Options
    View Tab
    check Display the full path in the address bar

    You can't click on "upstream" folders like you can in Vista, but it does show where you are.

    HTH

    Yeah thats not bad but its not as easy to read as the Vista style. I was hoping someone had developed a way of making it similar to Vista.

    Cheers for that tho.
