- If you click the icon left of the breadcrumbs ( or white space on the right ) it will reveal the folder path and highlight it ready for copying.

- There is a folder tree view in explorer if you expand the 'Computer' section in the left pane. To have it always expand to the folder being viewed: Tools, Folder Options, General Tab, Tick 'Automatically expand to current folder'.
