    expanding columns automatically
    have you ever highilghted a file that has a name longer than the actual width of the column? I konw i can extend the column by grabbing the bottom corner, and dragging the column outward...but, is there a way to just have columns automatically expand to the width of the file with the longest name?

    i would love that.

    Double click the handle to fit the single column to the largest file name.

    Option+Double click on the column handle to fit all the columns to their respective largest file names.

    yeah, that's close...i was hoping for something a bit more "automatic"....like, as i arrow down the files the column would respect that width of my file names.....what can i say, i am lazy and don't want to have to mouse down everytime i want to autofit columns..

    but not to discount your help...so thanks
