    Excel - File open - hover over files - file names do not show up


    Office 365 / Windows 10 x64

    Excel: File > Open shows a list of filenames.
    Due to the limited space, long file names are cut off, regretfully so.
    (There is a lot of unused empty space on the right of the File - Open dialog)

    Problem: in case long file names with almost identical names it sometimes is difficult to select the one: the differences between these files are displayed. See attachment. One file is 02-2021 the other 02-2020, or vice versa?

    Now, I suppose..., when hovering over the files, a pop-up would show up displaying the full file name(?)
    Repeat: suppose, as with me it never did.

    However, if my assumption is correct and indeed a pop-up should show up, then I wonder what could prevent this from happening.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    One of these options, perhaps...

    There's a similar option under Ease of Access.

    THANK you very much indeed!

    That worked well indeed.

    It saves me time figuring out which file is the one I need: browsing, clicking, drilling down the right folder, blah blah.

    Again, many thanks!
