how do i see full name of files?

i dont know if it has anything to do with windows 7...but...

like when i download or send files from/to my hotmail, sometimes it does somehting like this:
(when the name is just too big...it cuts it...)

Communiqu..
Communiqu..

and i just cant know whats the full name of the file,
i have many files with the name beginning with this and like its just kinda annoying...

any way to solve this?
(if i extend the name of the file bar it doesnt do anything)

You're going to have to give us some details, as your current question is too vague. Is it an Explorer window that you are seeing the truncated names in? Open file dialog box?

What about files that are downloaded from other places...not from your Hotmail account? You said it is an Explorer window...but your screenshot is from a webpage in Internet Explorer. It might be a setting in Hotmail, because the file name in your screenshot is truncated, so you know it will stay the same when downloading to your computer.

«Have you tried hovering over the word in question a box comes up with the full word» just tryed (just made a few test)
on my computer: full name
upload stuff to hotmail
on hotmail: partial name ( hovering over the word shows full name)
send message
receive message on hotmail
on hotmail: partial name ( hovering over the word does not shows full name)
download stuff from hotmail
on my computer: full name

though it would actually do the same thing if i uploaded from my cpu and sen it to myself...apparently not...


on coworker cpu: full name
upload stuff to ???unknown mail???
on ???unknown mail???: ???status unknown???
send message
receive message on hotmail
on hotmail: partial name ( hovering over the word does not shows full name)
download stuff from hotmail
on my computer: partial name ( hovering over the word does not shows full name)
