finder path bar to the top

I've searched, and there doesn't seem to be an answer.

Is there a way (terminal or otherwise) to move the path bar in finder to the top of the viewer? Somewhere below the title area and above the folder listing?

Not quite what you want, but it does display the full path at the top of each Finder window.

To undo, enter

Code:
defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool NO; killall Finder

Thanks for the replies.


I went with Peace's suggestion. Not really what I was looking for, but it seems OK for now, until I figure out the right google search terms.

It must be in a config file somewhere, are they not open/accessible like gnome/kde?
