Default Disabling Desktop Name Shortening.

Hi, How can i disable the auto shortening desktop files names. like if i type anything over 2 lines on a file or a shortcut, it automaticly shortens the name.

I use windows xp.

Thanks for your helps.

I dont think there is a way to stop that. It will never display a file name that long. I think the maximum amount of characters allowed for a file name is 255 if i am not mistaken. Even them Windows will never display all of that. It will give a part of it with the ... after part of the description.
