Breadcrumbs was initially introduced in GnomeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Nautilus file browser. This feature was later implemented in Windows Vista for simplifying directory navigation by adding a toolbar which shows the directories youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve navigated. Luckily for Windows XP users, a donationware called Explorer Breadcrumbs brings the same functionality to Windows XP.
With Explorer Breadcrumbs, you can click on the toolbar and go back to any previous directory at any point of time. Else, you can use the drop down menu on the breadcrumb toolbar to navigate further. In laymanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s words, Explorer Breadcrumbs lets you go to any location with a single click, rather than following through folder hierarchy.
As I told earlier, Explorer Breadcrumbs is a donationware. You can install it on any number of machines, but if you can show your appreciation by donation $7,95
