Question

Is there a way to change the Finder tab title to include the name of the containing folder?

Problem

I work on projects that have the same standardized subfolder names (e.g., code), which makes it difficult to switch between projects without going through each tab to identify the containing folder.

Current state: ambiguous Finder tab titles for three different subfolders Ambiguous Finder tab titles for three different folders

Goal

I'd like to display the containing folder name as part of the Finder tab title. Extending the example, this would look like: projectA/code, projectB/code, etc.

Ideal solution (blue text only to emphasize the change): enter image description here

Use the app "Onyx". It's free and you can use it to customize macOS. Go to Settings > Finder and there is a box for showing what you want ;)
