That is the menu bar from: Organise - layout , and tick "menu bar"


P.S. Maybe another one for the Tutorials if it is not already in there?
The issue here is to display the full length title in the list view mode, not in details view mode. In vista/xp you can have the full length title in list view mode.

so you were suggesting that switch to details view, fit the column, and switch back to list view? Mine didn't work. I did tried select from organise-layout-menu bar.

I use both type of view frequently. List view is very usefull for me to display huge list of items without scrolling all the way down.

Exactly. The bug here is not being able to view long file names in list view. Oh well I sent some feedback to MS maybe they'll fix it heh.

*I* understood what you meant - hence my testing and realizing that you were right.

I use details view almost exclusively, so I had not noticed this before....

Good deal. The more people that send this in the more (hopefully) that we'll be able to fix it.

What would be even better would be auto-sizing columns....

Hey guys. Any ideas how to fix this yet?? This is by far the most annoying issue for me.. Maybe the Brink himself can look into that ^^ ? I tried tweaking the registry, but miserably failed doing so. Any help would be much appreciated.
