Can't see full file names in Files Panel

This is driving me mad. I am using Dreamweaver 2020 and have lost the ability to see full file names in the files panel. I used to be able to read them. When I descend a tree and file/folder info shifts right the column remains the main width so all but a few letters are available to the eye. I click “expand the file panel” and yes, the panel expands but not the column which is now hard left, but just as narrow. I have manually dragged the panel edge but the same things happens. I am sure what to do is easy – when you know how, But how? (I have reset the Standard workspace but no dice).

See my screenshot.  Where arrows are pointing, click & drag to make wider.

If you don't want to make your Files window wider, you can also hover over the file names to get the full name of the truncated ones. In the image below, I was hovering over "display_assembl" ...

Thank you. So, it is like all other Adobe navigation. I just couldn't make it work. Done so now.
