Viewing the complete file name

Viewing the complete file name

How do I see the entire names of my Dropbox files without mousing over each name one by one?  In the folder that they're in, the format of the list causes the file names to be truncated, so I have to rename the files to get the important words at the beginning and the very end of the file name.  This is annoying and time-consuming.  Is there any way to increase the width of the columns in the list of files in a folder or to make the font of the list smaller?

Thanks.

Hello @Roxxxannne, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community!

To make sure that we're on the same page, could you clarify if you're referring to the desktop app or your local Dropbox folder via Finder/File Explorer?

If you could send us a screenshot of what you're seeing, that would also be helpful. 

Give me another nudge whenever you have time to check this out, thanks!
