So if, for example, you want to recognize the last opened or currently active folder in Explorer, please use the "Show full path" option. This option shows the full path of the active Explorer in all 4 Tab Explorer groups.

3.) User request to change the Explorer title name!
The User Question!
we are many in our company to use your tool and we are really enjoying it, our boss even requires everyone to use it: it allows us to be more efficient and I think he's right.
Anyway, my suggestion is about the title bar name: currently you can select to show many things but there is one thing I would like you to add: the name of the Q-Dir file used to open the window (.qdr): The reason is that I'm working on many projects at the same time, and I can have 2 or 3 Q-Dir windows (with 4 windows inside each...) open at the same time. Problem is that sometimes I'm lost with these windows and I'm not sure which one is which... So I would really appreciate to be able to show the name of the .qdr file in the title bar (or some user-editable field for example).
Do you think this is possible for you?

|Asked questions on this answer:|
- I prefer to use Windows Explorer and switch through the windows with a tab. That is fast enough for me, with up to 16 Explorer windows I don't need a full path in the title bar?
- Can I also adjust the title bar under Windows 10 does that, I will use the Quad Explorer on Windows 10, the window color in Windows Explorer is white by default as in Q-Dir, I can do this via the accent color for title bars, all the title bar adjustments work on latest Windows 10 May 2020 update?
- Under Windows it is only a few clicks of the mouse to fully activate the folder path of the current folder in the title bar. It is easier here, it is almost too much information in the title bar and then 4 File Explorer in Germany nobody wants to use that what is clear, nobody needs the part downloaded at all?
- The complete path to the respective folder who needs that, it will only be shown in the title bar if the classic one is switched on, i.e. if Explorer is active, does the complete path in the upper title bar also appear?
- I like to customize personalization on Windows 10, by default I use the path folder in the title bar which is the best for me, good to recognize it in the taskbar tooltip?
- I like these Explorer title bar functions, why does Windows Explorer not have the changes in the title bar and should there be more in the title bar, maybe a ticker or so is that possible?
- So it is enough for me as in MS Windows Explorer, the complete file path in the title bar is absolutely sufficient, I do not know anything else under Linux, the Windows Explorer does not show it in its title bar by default, which is currently open but is new to beginners with a lot of information, confused and probably overwhelmed by a quad explorer, but sometimes it can make sense to see the full folder path, why not?
