#1690 Show real full path in title bar


At first: Great tool!
Even if the option "Show full path in title bar (instead of file name only)" is selected, the full path is not show (while it could be, because it is not too long).
Example: When database file D:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Database.kdbx is opened, the title bar shows: "D:\Documents and Set...\Database.kdbx".
The same title bar is shown when any other database file in a subfolder of My Documents is opened.
There is no way (other than opening a second database) to figure out which database is open:
E.g. there is no properties entry in the file menu where you could see which database is open (or is the first op "Open Recent >" allways the current active one?).
Only when you open a second database, tabs appear, which when hovered, show the real full path.
It would be nice when for example the top folder (Group) "Database" is hovered, that then the real full path is shown (if it is impossible to just show it in the title bar).

    KeePass truncates the path as few as possible; longer paths cannot be displayed.

    In KeePass 2.23, opened files will have an '(Opened)' suffix and are drawn in blue in the MRU list. Thus, in order to see the complete full path, you can navigate to 'File' -> 'Open Recent'; here KeePass doesn't need to truncate the paths.

    The latest development snapshot for testing is available here:

    Thanks and best regards,

    Just to be sure: So if I use multiple databases with the same name, i will not be able to know the difference except by looking at the contents?

    (I am involved in several projects with each their own synced KeePass DB)

    @ Jonny Woller.
    Yes, it is not possible with the current release, but see Dominik Reichel's reaction. It is solved in the next release.
    Kind regards, Wim Koornstra

    Ah ok, I understood it as, it could not be done, not in the future either. Never mind then. :)
