In Display Settings, there is the option for "Display end of path if insufficient space for whole path"
enter image description here

Is there any way to display more than just the very last path segment? ...Or, hide the beginning of the path?

For example, instead of showing something like this:

C:\root\folder01\folder02 ...\folder09\

I would like to be able to see a bit more, like this:

C:\root\folder01\folder02 ...\folder07\folder08\folder09\

In fact, I would be okay with seeing only the last few segments, like this:


Many times, having only the last segment visible isn't helpful. Say for example I am searching for a file and I get a result like this:

Several files match the search, but the Location column isn't helpful in this case. I know they're all in a "css" subfolder somewhere.

Only when I expand the column a lot will I start seeing useful path information. It would be nice if I could just hide, say, the beginning of the path (highlighted in the image):
