How do I see the name of the folder in the taskbar?

Hi people!

New here on the forum. Here a thing that's been bugging me for ages. If you open a folder, you only see the beginning of the path in the taskbar. I usually work with many open windows and can't really tell which one's which until I click them. Is there a way to see what folder you're in instead of showing the path?

Note that I don't group items in the taskbar since I want an overview of what's running all the time.

Thanks :)

Do you mean this?

Control Panel, folder options, view. Select "display the full path in the title bar".

That easy...embarrased, should have figured it out myself :/

Thanks :D
