To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column.

Newton News -- Thinking about buying a Newton? If so, you'll want to note that between now and through the last day in July, Apple is offering a $50 rebate on the purchase of a MessagePad 120. Or, you can get a $100 rebate for purchasing a MessagePad 120 along with an "eligible accessory." Eligible accessories include Apple's Newton Connection Kit version 2.0 for Macintosh or Windows, an external or PCMCIA fax modem, 2 MB or 4 MB flash storage cards, the Newton Print Pack, a battery charging station, a leather zip case, or a Newton enhancement pack.
