This isn't really a big issue, but just because I am being particular about it.
Some folder names will get cut off in the middle of the word.

Is there a setting or way, even something hackish, to extend the max wrap around length of folder or file names? Limiting the wrap around to only non-alphanumeric characters would work too.

Open the advanced Appearance Setting dialog:

Here increase the horizontal spacing to a higher values until it matches your longer string.

The displayed text field space is determined by the Icon size. It's wrapped at the width of the Icon.

Perhaps check out "How to change desktop icon size in Windows 7 without mouse wheel?" and/or "How do I reduce the desktop icon size in Windows 7?" for some ideas on how ot adjust the icon size.

  • It does work, but I do not want to resize my icons. :[
