How to see files complete name without the "..."

As you know when there is a file that has a name that's too long, it wil be cut with ...
So for example, if a file's name is "Hello my name is john I come from USA"
It will be showed as "Hello my name is..." unless you click the file

Any idea to see the complete name wthout that ...?

You can also click on the desktop to see all of the long file names on the desktop as well. The best solution would be to keep the file names shorter if possible though.
