Hi folks,

how do I get the address bar to show in explorer?

Like in My Documents in the address bar it would show 'My Documents'

Thanks, James

View/Toolbars, Tick Address bar.

I just did what you suggested, however, the address bar does not appear, it just says 'Address' on the right which is greyed out.

PS. I'm running XP Home

Right click the toolbar, untick Lock the Toolbar.

You should now see a dotted line just to the left of the greyed out "Address". Left click on it and hold the button down. Drag downwards and the address bar should appear.
