WANTED: way to auto-expand column view in Finder

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm wondering if there is a way auto-expand the furthest right-hand column (when in column view) in the Finder window. It seems I'm always expanding that column manually to better read longer file names, so I thought it would be very convenient if there were a way for the OS to do this for me.

 

Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks! :-)

You can double click on the resize handle and it will automatically expand to fit the longest file name.

Not exactly "auto expand", but I'll take what I can get ;) Too bad this isn't a feature you can control through system preferences. It'd be great to not have to click or drag anything just to be able to read file names.

 

Thanks for your reply!

That would be an awesome feature. Is there any third party software that might do it?
