Show Full Directory Path in OSX Finder

July 2, 2013 — Leave a comment

I did not like how I never knew where I was in the directories of MAC OSX. You can display the full directory path by issuing this simple command from the Terminal.

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

Then you’ll want to restart the Finder for the command to take effect.

killall Finder

To revert back to default:

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool NO
killall Finder
