I have Windows Explorer set to Show Full Path In Title bar. For me, it is essential to see that information in the title bar. However this causes an issue for the "thumbnail" views.
When I have a number of Windows Explorer windows open to different folders, I can use the task bar Explorer icon to show "thumbnails" of all the folders. Or I can use Alt-Tab to see thumbnails of all windows.
In both cases the Explorer paths are all truncated to only show the first part, and they all look the same. I see a dozen thumbnails that look like "C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\Nam..."
All the differences are below the \Documents level.
I tried using SUBST E: "C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents" and then using E: for Documents.
This has several problems:
- Deleting files from E: disables use of Recycle Bin
- The SUBST drive letter cannot be included in Quick Access
- The SUBST drive cannot be named (I would like to name it "Documents") It must be the same drive name as the physical drive it is on (e.g. C:)
Is there another approach to shorten the displayed path to the Documents folder?
