    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...

    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.
