    How can I make it so the info under my desktop icons is not cut off?

    I have it set so I see the capacities of my mounted volumes, but the information is abbreviated to "fit" under the icons. This abbreviation is making this feature useless.

    I generally see:
    "232.44 GB, .... .59 GB Free"

    I have what free? (View attachment)

    I've seen other people's desktop pictures where this information is stacked under the icon, and not in a single line. How did they do that?

    It's not a brilliant solution, but try dropping the text size down to 10 in the View Options window. :)

    Icons titles cut off

    I suspect it is not the size of your font that is the problem. Try closing all apps. Click on View/Show View Options and change the grid size to a large number. This worked for me.
