In ES File Explorer, each folder has its name underneath it. But if the name is long, only a truncated version of it appears. How can I see the full name?

Bonus question: is there a more general way of seeing full file names when only partial names are shown?

Assuming that ES File Explorer is on the default view, which is Large Icon, long-press the folder/file, then select More - Properties to see its full name.

For a general solution (in case there are many folders/files with long names), the alternative is to change the view to list by selecting View - (any) List/Detail. In most cases, it will display a long enough name. The downside is fewer folders/files are shown.


In addition to Andrew's answer (Selecting More --> Properties on the bottom right corner of the app)

You can also select the file and press Rename on the bottom next to delete.
