How to prevent Chrome from hiding part of a URL

If you are like me, Google Chrome hiding your URL paths on a desktop operating system is annoying at best. This post contains a step-by-step guide for disabling this "feature".

The problem

Instead we should see a path, like this:


  1. In the address bar (Chrome Omnibox) enter chrome://flags.

  1. Search (CMD+F or CONTROL+F) for "steady state"

  1. Change the setting mode "default" to "disabled".

  1. Click relaunch, or quit and reopen Chrome manually.

Keep in mind that Chrome will reset all of these options accessed through flags whenever it updates.
