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.
