    Display path in Address Bar

    How do I disable the 'display the full path in address bar' found in Tools --> Folder Options --> View. Does anyone know where this is in a GPO?

    I don't thing this can be done with a GPO ?

    Reg hack
    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState]
    "FullPath"=dword:00000000           ;Display the Full Path in the Title Bar (1=Enabled, 0=Disabled)
    "FullPathAddress"=dword:00000001    ;Display the Full Path in the Address Bar (1=Enabled, 0=Disabled)

    Is that for logon or startup?

    It's a User setting, so logon.

    That REG file works.

    I was wondering if I put the reg file in netlogon... how would I use a BAT file to call it up?

    After googling, I've come up with this

    Code:
    %windir%\regedit.exe /s %LOGONSERVER%\NETLOGON\Logon\Scripts\AddressBar.reg
    Unfortunately this doesn't work. If I have it this way it works:

    Code:
    %windir%\regedit.exe /s \\adminserver1\NETLOGON\Logon\Scripts\AddressBar.reg

    We have 2 DCs, so how would adminserver2 call the reg if adminserver1 is switched off?

    Code:
    regedit /S \\Servername\NETLOGON\filename.reg
    This'll do it

    Am I doing something wrong, because it didn't work for me.

    I've got this:

    Code:
    %windir%\regedit.exe /s \\Servername\NETLOGON\Scripts\AddressBar.reg

    The actual BAT file is shoved into a folder along with the corresponding GPO in the User Configuration --> Logon setting

    It should ideally call the reg file from the netlogon folder, shouldn't it?

    I've just created a .reg file and .bat file for you.

    Dump them both in netlogon, and point the logon script at the AddressBar.bat file.

    Just made an ADM template so that people can set this via GPO if they don't want to use scripting.

    Note:
    You will need to turn of GP filtering to get it to show up because of the location of the reg key. To do this go to the view menu and click filtering, then untick "Only show policy setting that can be fully managed"

    The policies show up under

    User Config > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer : Display the Full Path in the Title Bar

    and

    User Config > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer : Display the Full Path in the Address Bar

    After you copy the ADM file to the Windows/INF folder of the machine that you are using to manage policies, Add it by right clicking Administrative templates -> Add/Remove... from the GP editing snapin and turning off the filter as above.
