Hi, is there a way/option to make it so that when you click on the file, it will show the full file name instead of continuing to show the shortened name with the dots? I know you can hold down option, but that takes too long, and I've already increased the grid spacing all the way...

You could look at the desktop folder in finder

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

Yeah, but that's not very efficient... I was just wondering if there was some hidden option or some command /code/something that would make it so that when you click on that file, it shows the full name.
