Default Show Full File Path in Title Bar

Is there a setting in Office or any of the individual programs (2007 version) in Office that allows the display of the full path to the opened file in the window title bar?

Click the office button (top left) select prepare and select poperties. The document properties bar should now display showing the document location on the right with unfortunately all the other document properties as well. Also you can in the title bar to the right of the office button select the down arrow on the right (after the redo symbol) select "more commands", on the left select "customize", in the "choose commands from" box select "all commands", the box under scroll down to "document location" select it and press the "add" button. Press "OK" and a path box should appear in the title bar however it is not very long if you have a long path but you can select it and scroll right or left to read the path.
