In older versions of Windows the Title Bar used to display your current location in the file system. In Windows 8 this is not the default behavior, however, you can enable it if you wish to.

Display the Full Path in the Windows Explorer Title Bar

Press the Windows + E keyboard combination to open Windows Explorer and then switch over to the View tab.

On the right-hand side click on options and then select Change folder and search options from the drop-down.

When the Folder Options dialog opens, switch over to the View options.

Here you will need to tick the Display the full path in the title bar check box.

Thatโ€™s all there is to it.
