how to show file path in folder browser?

I have tried a few distros and have always been able to figure this out, but somehow missing it in Debian.

I want to have the file path displayed when browsing folders, and can not find the way to do it. So the line would display home/mike/backup, whatever.

Can someone help?

Thank You

Browsing folders how? Command line? GUI? If GUI, which?

I presume you're opening a folder in Nautilus (by clicking on the folder from the desktop) If you arrive on the folder you want, press Ctrl+L and you get the full path to that folder. If you want it 'point&click' do 'File' -> 'Open location...'
