How to see document file name with full path when hovering mouse over title bar?

Apr 1, 2013 5:57 PM

Using PS CS6, Windows 7 x64.

 

I was under the impression that when hovering my mouse over the document title bar, I would see a tooltip showing the full file name, including the path.  This isn't happening and I'm wondering if there is a way to do this.  I know I can click File > Save As, or Ctrl+Shift-S to see the full path, but hoving over the title bar would be easier.  (What I am seeing now in the tooltip is the file name, % magnification and which layer I have selected.  Basically, the tooltip is just showing what's in the title bar without hovering.)

 

Thank you!

 

John

    If you use Bridge the full path is in the main toolbar.

    As PS uses subrouties from the OS for various functions you might go into Window Expolorer and see if an option to show full path is enabled.  Perhaps it will determine what show is tooltip.

    What you describe, the removal of the path, is normal behavior, and I don't think there's a way to make it show otherwise.  It has only ever shown the name for me.

     

    You could consider using the right-click Reveal in Explorer menu.

    Hm, I wonder if it's something they may have enabled only for the Cloud version (I have 13.1.2).  If so, I didn't notice the change at the time of the upgrade.

    Nope, it's not that - I have a virtual machine for testing with 13.0.1 installed...  This is what I see there:

    Aha, I think it's a tabbed view vs. windowed view thing...

    I don't imagine you'd like to try to switch the way you manage your documents, though - most folks like one way or the other and stick with it.

    On mac, one right clicks on name bar and holds, producing a list which is the path.Screen Shot 2013-04-02 at 8.40.01 PM.png

    I noticed one interesting thing in tabbed mode: if you right-click on the file name, you will see a different context menu than if you click in the bar to the right of the file name.  Reveal in Explorer is only on the context menu when the cursor is on the file name in the title bar.

     

    Hm, it would be nice, for the folks who use windowed view, if that right-click menu from Tabbed view that you get when clicking on the filename in tabbed view could be implemented for when you right-click on the filename in the window title bar.

    Right-click on the name, not in the sliver of space below or above it.

    As you can see my cursor is directly on the name. Your solution does not work.

    As you can see, your cursor is not visible in the screenshot.

     

    I should have seen the lack of a file icon to the left of the name, though.

     

    Anyway, look in your other thread. I've explained the situation there. Your doc has never been saved except "As Copy" therefore it is not associated with a file whose path could be revealed.

    If you replicate what I did and take a screenshot you'll see that the dropdown always drops where the cursor is and that the cursor itself doesn't show up in the screenshot.

     

    Therefore, again, you are incorrect, the location of the dropdown is in the file name, indicating that that is where my cursor is placed.

     

    If you are just going to argue with me please leave this thread.

     

    If you have any relevant information I'm happy to see it. It is clear that this is a program issue. I've been using PS since the mid 90's.

    Hey, I went out of my way to try to help you, mister!

     

    I made mistakes.

     

    Being wrong is not equivalent to being deliberately argumentative.

     

    Get off your high horse!
