seeing entire file names in a torrent contents list in uTorrent

It's a big chunk of the file name, including the extension.  The extension isn't the important part in this case though, it's the large missing chunks of the file names.

Hi: Is it the extension of the file only, or is there more to the file name you are missing?  If it's the file extension only, then go to file explorer, then view, and turn off hide file extensions.

Hi everybody,

I'm wanting to download only a few certain files from a very large torrent, but I'm running into a problem.  Going down the list with NVDA, I'm finding that the name of every single file is cut off and missing the exact information that I need to make my selections.  Is there anything I can do to expand that?  You can't resize the window and if there's another way to see that info I'm missing it.  Would appreciate any help anyone might have.

Thanks,

Steve

I never tried exactly what you're asking. But if you enable the web
interface and google the port it uses, I forget what the default is,
that might give you more access. It's a bit weird too, lots of clickable
stuff, but you do get access to some things you can't normally get at.
Probably easier just to grab the whole thing and delete what you don't
want though.


Oh you'll also want to set it to manual download probably, so you can
queue it up and then go into the web interface to see if you can pick
individual files. Actually, now that I think about it, I might be
thinking of QBitTorrent, though UTorrent might have a web interface too.
I've yet to find a torrent client that's actually fully accessible with
NVDA though, so good luck. I think UTorrent's list view worked ages and
ages ago, but it hasn't really been functional with NVDA for quite a
while now.
