    Question Showing the Full File Name Easily on the Desktop (OS X Lion)
    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
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    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.
