What’s the address bar for in Windows Explorer?

Q:
What’s the address bar for in Windows Explorer?

A:
If you drop it down, you’ll get a quick overview of the system drives and folders. This is especially helpful if you have a lot of folders on your C: drive. I normally have to do a ton of scrolling just to get down to where my CD ROM drive is, but by using Address drop down box, I’m only a quick click away. To give it a test run, right-click your Start button and select Explore .

In addition, you can actually run programs from it by typing in the full path to the program and hitting Enter (if you enjoy doing that sort of thing). For example, if you would like to run Windows notepad, type the following into the address box: C:\windows\notepad.exe

Oh, one more useless thing… If you are connected to the internet, you can type in a web address in the address bar and be transported there using Windows Explorer. Why?

Beats the heck out of me…
