How to show full file path in the status bar or title bar in Sublime and Visual Studio Code

You can see that the full file path is being show at the top title bar.

If you feel that you want to show the full file paths in your favorite editors - Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code, follow the simple steps below:

Sublime Text (on a Mac):

Goto Sublime Text -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "show_full_path": true
}

Visual Studio Code (on a Mac):

Goto Visual Studio, Code -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong}"
}

As a small tweak, i added the following into my visual studio title, as it allows any custom string:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong} - work hard, play harder"
}

Now you can see the full path of the files in the top title bar.
