Question: Can't resize Finder List View name column past a certain maximum width
I'm using High Sierra 10.3.3. I finally installed High Sierra a couple of weeks ago and I think this problem started after that. Previously, when using the Finder in "List View", I could resize the "name" column as wide as I wanted, which is useful when dealing with very long file names. I.e. so that you can see the entire filename on one line when you click to edit the file name. And when just looking at finder, you can see the entire filename without an ellipsis (...) in the middle of the name.
But now, there is a point at which I can't make the name column wider. The resizing tool changes from the <-|-> style to just being <-| . At that point I can only make the column narrower. See the image below showing the resizing tool. It looks like the limit is 1000 pixels wide. Why? Is there a setting I can change somewhere to NOT have width limits?
This is in LIST VIEW. I know that in Column View I can drag the resizing handle at the bottom, between columns, to any width. But I DON'T WANT to use Column View. I used to able to resize to any width in List View, and I want to do that again.
Please reply if you know what I can do to "fix" this. Thanks!
