Recently after a chkdsk and reboot I lost the address bar in Windows Explorer and could not add it back. How do I bring the address bar back?
I have been searching for weeks across many posts and today found a solution that actually works so I wanted to share that:
Open up a new Windows Explorer, the Address Bar should now be visible.
In Windows 7 this seems to happen also in normal mode if "Auto-hide" is activated in full screen mode. Put explorer into full screen mode (F11) and open system menu (alt+space). Uncheck Auto-Hide and return to normal mode (F11).
