I need to widen some properties windows/dialogs in Windows 7 to be able to read some very long paths.

How can I do this?

Thanks!

PS: I have already tried ResizeEnable and AuthoHotKeys, and let's just say that I do not want to use them again, ever. Please do not recommend them.

@Diogo I'm not sure that' s a duplicate. I think this user wants to stretch visible dialog Window to reveal hidden text. The flagged dupe seems to be about the number of characters available in a Windows file path. –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 14 '12 at 12:53
    
Cannot you drag window side by mouse to view full path? –  Asif Jun 14 '12 at 13:01
    
If it's a long path, try highlighting it with the cursor and moving your cursor to the right, like you're selecting text. That's worked for me on occasion. –  ekaj Jun 14 '12 at 13:16
    
@Asif: no (try it, you'll see) –  kjo Jun 14 '12 at 16:10
