I do not know what's wrong - I have a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition, all of a sudden the Windows Explorer has stopped displaying the name of the Folder at the top (in the title bar). Here is a snapshot of it:

Looks like the same as mine, is the snap shot a image of what it looks like now or used to look like? – Luke Russell May 3 '12 at 17:13
it's what it looks like now. – user221287 May 3 '12 at 17:14
Previously there used to be name of the folder, (in this case - "Back to the Future") used to written at the top. – user221287 May 3 '12 at 17:15

You must have been using the classic theme before because with the Aero theme (what is shown in the picture) Windows 7 doesn't show any title in the title bar area.

In order to change you need to

  1. Right click the desktop and choose Personalize
  2. Click on Windows Classic Theme

I have not changed any setting/theme, all of a sudden the title disappeared. – user221287 May 3 '12 at 18:13
I can confirm that by design, the Windows 7 Aero theme does not display any text in Windows Explorer's title bar. – iglvzx May 4 '12 at 16:55

ShellFolderFix utility allows to display the folder name even under Aero.
