It’s possible to see folder path in Finder with the help of one line of code in terminal. To enable folder path view, copy and paste the as follows;

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

And to make it work instantly, you should restart or refresh Finder as it follows from Terminal window again;

killall Finder

To revert it back, just type the same codes and change boolean type YES to NO

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES
killall Finder
