Breadcrumbs (a.k.a Breadcrumb Navigation) refers to the series of navigational steps taken to reach the desired location (information) in a website’s content. Breadcrumbs are also found in file management software such as Windows Explorer, Mac OS Finder, Nautilus, Dolphin, etc.

Examples of Breadcrumbs for a website and in a file manager could look like these:

Home Page -> Books -> Children’s Books -> Age Category

Local Disk (C:) -> Program Files -> Mozilla Firefox

The term comes from the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm.
