I look for a file in finder, finder finds it. But, I'd like to find it's full path. How do I do that?
You can also enter the following in Terminal:
defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES
This will display the full path in the titlebar.
to turn it back off change the -bool
Or if you want to copy the text of the path you can drag the file into Terminal.
There are a few ways:
Right-click the folder name in the top of the window
In the Finder choose "View > Show Path Bar"
Use Go2Shell to open a terminal window at that location
Install the FinderPath app
It shows the full address when you click the title in Finder
Works just like Windows
Still works on MacOS 13.1
Right click the file and press info. Then you will get the file path infront of where.
On Ventura 14, there's a menu option under View (Opt+Ctrl+P) and then you see the entire path at the bottom of the window. Combine that with Cmd+Shift+. to see hidden files and you're all set. These settings persist after restart.
Note that the option under View does not appear (at least on my setup) unless you've first opened a Finder window.
