    Increasing the number of characters under desktop icons
    hey everyone.

    so, i am not sure exactly what happened, but all the icons on my desktop allow very few words/characters under them. example...

    instead of the hard drive icon having "Macintosh HD"

    it instead has "...D"

    is there a quick way to increase the number of characters allowed with those icons? thanks for any suggestions!

    15" MacBook Pro 2.7 GHz Quad i7, 16GB | 27" iMac 3.1 GHz Quad i5 12GB|OS X.11.1 | iPhone 4 iOS 7.1.2
    right click/ctrl click on the desktop & select "show view options"
    increase the value of the "grid spacing" slider....this should solve the problem.
