How do I change Exploer's address bar permamently to the 'real' address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I need the to change Explorer's address bar to display the folder in it's native format C:\Windows\etc... instead of this new format which does not work for me.  I manage 50+ servers all by typing in the UNC to their drives and I constantly keep having to click on the bar to navigate any file system.   I also need to 'up' button turned back on.  How do I accomplish this?

    Thanks

  • Install ClassicShell to disable the breadcrumbs in the address bar:
