Is there any way I can make Windows Server 2003 show the name of folder I opened on Start Menu then whole directory of it, e.g. now I got 4 folders opened and they all showing me this,

C:\Documents and Settings\...  

Even though I am in different folders but I can't identify them.

Not sure if its the right place to ask this question.

Not in the title bar no, there's no control (unless there's a hidden registry setting), but the address bar is a bit more intelligent at showing the more pertinent parts, and clicking in the address bar reverts back to the full path string.

problem is, I have to go through 4 of folders opened (but minimized) to see which folder is which one :( – Muhammad Raja Feb 8 '13 at 10:45
Then an alternative might be: Launching task manager, shows the explorer windows with folder names as a list. Alt+Tab or Win+Tab might also show the name? – cjb110 Feb 8 '13 at 10:48
