Hi there,

The full file path (including file name) is already on PhpStorm's title bar (folder + file name). You can also see path relative to your project in Navigation Bar (if file is outside the project, then full path will be shown).

If you are on Mac -- then AFAIK path is not shown there (just as it was requested by Mac users, if I'm not mistaken)

Under my Kubuntu 14 Tutlebar is empty http://i055.radikal.ru/1408/5f/caba45d58756.png
Is it some option in Settings ? I did not find.

It is there :)

Here is your window title after adjusting contrast in Photoshop

I'm telling you: white text is very hard to see on light gray background. You should consider altering your system colors a bit.

I use Kubuntu 14 with KDE sure, but I did not find where to change these parameters.
I searched and tested different options in "System Settings"->"Applicfation Appearance"->"Colors", but I did not find anything...

Thanks, I found how it is set in my Kubuntu.
In settings that is in "Windows Decoration->Configure the look and feel of window titles".


But also I would like to show full name of currently edited file, as now it is shown in some shortened way like "/Project/.../application/...".
Can I make it ?

There is no options for that.

Hello!

In phpStorm 2020.1.2, the full path to the file in the IDE window title was gone. What option to return it back to?

@Andriy Bazanov it's not showing full path. It's showing path beginning from project root. 

Full path would be /Users/username/PhpstormProjects/projectName/magento/vendor/magento/framework/Component/README.md in my case.

In that pass I would like to see the project name.

You are on a Mac. MacOS users are special :) : they want short stuff so it all looks eye-candy. In fact: users (Mac in particular) were asking (IDEA-52089 and related) for even less info to be displayed there...

It's normal to have different people to want different things: some want to see tabs and what file they are working with while other want just text editor area and hide the rest because "it distracts a lot" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Current behaviour (from here: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-98839#focus=Comments-27-3570311.0-0 )

The separate logic for calculating the window title on Mac OS X (which did not include the file path) was removed in 2017. Now the window title always shows the path to the current file relative to the project root.

I'm on a Windows and it's there (the project path + relative path top the module root). Although it can get shorter/hidden if there is no space (smaller screens):

 

Anyway -- you may be interested in these:

Used to be Custom Title plugin (was working great back in 2017) .. but AFAIK it's no longer working for a few years now...

@Andriy Bazanov Thank you for your comprehensive answer.

Indeed, I recently switched from linux to mac OS and as far as I remember, there was no such problem on linux. Basically, it's not bad that the short path is shown, but it would be even better if there was a way to see the full path in the popup when hovering over the short path with the cursor.

Do you know, do I need to create a ticket to have this done?

Do you have Editor tabs visible? It already works like that when I hover over the Editor tab here:

 

Some other ways to see the full file path (based on the currently focused area):

Edit | Copy Path reference: (will not show whole path if it's too long though)

Navigate | File Path... -- will show a popup with each part of the path as a menu entry (so you can jump right there) -- gives you an overview of the path.

 

Do you know, do I need to create a ticket to have this done?

Feel free to create it: it will not hurt. If there is an existing ticket that matches your concern then devs will simply mark it as a duplicate and that will count as +1 vote for that ticket.

@Andriy Bazanov I don't use editor tabs to get more vertical space. Instead, I use Ctrl + Tab or Command + E. I can see the full path by opening the terminal, but it is an unnecessary movement.

You can display editor tabs on the side... (and lack the horizontal space instead 😉 )

@Andriy Bazanov It turned out that I must have had to reload phpstorm. After I reloaded phpstorm, the full path appeared.
