    HI all, sorry if this is a bit of a simple question but I cannot figure it out :-/ Google has not helped either.

    In Finder I wish to view my folders and files in "Column View" i.e. View as Columns option in Finder.

    However all the columns that display from left to right are rather narrow. So unless the folder names are very short(mine are not) then they are "shortened" so the full name cannot be read.

    I wish to manually "drag" or somehow change the column widths so they display the full name of each folder or file.

    The left hand most pane with Documents, Applications, Desktop etc can be width adjusted by moving the mouse pointer to the edge until the little "double arrow" appears. But it does not appear for any of the actual columns.

    I would appreciate any help :)

    Screenshot attached below, to show the narrow columns and shortened folder names.

    Please disregard.

    Just noticed the "handles" at the very bottom of each column. I can use these to adjust! <slaps forehead>
