I personally cannot stand the “bread crumb” toolbar Microsoft makes us use as a default. I really wish this was an option to enable or disable. I see a lot of praise for this new feature with people saying “it makes navigation extremely fast” … Am I alone here? Am I the only one who sees no benefit to this? When i am navigating an OS I get there via a straight line .. I have no reason to go back somewhere else along the journey. I am a proponent of shortcuts for frequently used paths. When I want to view the traditional path of a certain location, it actually requires an additional mouse click! How is this more efficient? How does that speed things up?
For instance my buddy online want to take a look at templates in C:Program FilesHPPhotosmart EssentialTemplate … well here it is with bread crumbs.
Here it is after clicking the folder and copying it with “Ctrl+C”. Then to change that view back to breadcrumb you hit the “Tab” key.
Now, if you hit “Ctrl+C” while the Breadcrumb bar is highlighted and then “Ctrl+V” to paste… it will show C:Program FilesHPPhotosmart EssentialTemplate …
I would like to know how many others do not like the “Bread crumb” explorer view. Does anyone know of a third party app that will get rid of this?
Or if you do think this is an enhancement to Windows let us know that too! It’s a small gripe but one that annoys me nonetheless.
