truncate 'scan filename'
« on: January 17, 2005, 04:49:08 PM »
hopefully, this issue hasn't been raised yet. if so, my apologies in advance.

however, i've notice often when using the "scan FILENAME" in windows explorer, that excessively long files names are often allowed to remain excessively long--sometimes taking up the entire width of the screen. it would be great if avast! would truncate the name of the files as shown on the context menu after some specified width, and just add the usual '...' at the end.

Welcome to the forum.
I believe the context menue display is controlled by windows not avast!.
I'm sure if that's not the case, some one will correct me shortly. ;D

Good suggestion... Maybe avast can just take out the code for adding the name of the file after the word Scan.
