10.5 ::: Show full directory path in Finder window title bars

OSXDaily posted something interesting here

The geekier amongst us and those familiar with Unix should really like this trick. You can have Mac OS X 10.5 display the full directory path in the Finder window title bar by issuing a simple command from the Terminal.

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

Then youâ ‚¬ „¢ll want to kill the Finder for changes to take effect:

killall Finder

and the result looks like this:

To disable the full path title bars and revert back to the default, simply repeat the command with NO instead of YES as the operator:

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool NO

killall Finder
