I coud not find setting to show the full file path in the window title bar. It just shows the file name. Is there an option for this somewhere?

Something like a workaround:

The control 'LoadURL' which can be checked for the 'Standard' toolbar (default: leftmost) will show the full path/name. I virtually never use it for another purpose. Unfortunately this control has a fix width and I would prefer to have it wider or adjustable - but it is useful as it is, too. (Not every long path-name will fit in the window's title-bar.)

By default, I think, the 'LoadURL' control is not checked.

Yes I want to do that, same file name but in different folders, it gets confusing which file is which and then you save to the wrong place!!!!

Me too. And sometimes it's not just 'same filename in different folders' but 'on different drives' (e.g., flash drive v. hard drive). Start saving multiple copies to different media (e.g., to have multiple backups) and it can get very confusing very quickly.
