How can I get right-size this column to show the entire filename in the Finder on Mavericks? It used to work in previous OSs. I am in column view. Right-size all columns doesn't work either. It keeps leaving ... where the filename should be.

Listing of filenames with ... instead of complete name


Just double clic on the separator between the columns ;)

  • That works, except not in the Time Machine backups.backupdb folder. A double-click does nothing there for me. It only worked once. But I can't repeat it. Apr 3 '14 at 20:11

An even better solution I found is XtraFinder. It sets my Finder windows permanently to right-size every column, so I can always see the entire filename. It saves me an amazing amount of time. I found it here: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42067/xtrafinder
