MS Word Doc >> How can I view the path and filename in the title bar at the top?

In Wordperfect the Path & filename displays in that blue bar at the top. In
Word (2003), only the filename & application appears there. Is there a way to
get the path & filename to display in that blue bar?

MS Word Doc >> How can I view the path and filename in the title bar at the top? One way is to click on Tools | Macro | Macros, add the following
line to your AutoOpen macro:

ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName

Another way is to click on Tools | Customize | Commands |
Categories: Web | Commands: Address. Drag the Address command to
your toolbar area. Click on Close. If you are prompted to save
changes to your Normal.dot global template when you exit Word,
say yes. Obviously, this method puts the path in the toolbar
area, not in the title bar at the top of the screen.
