You would not need to relocate WL.  Keep it where it is.  Just create a 
directory with a short name, like C:\VE7FO\LOGS or C:\WL, for example.  Then 
save your WL log files (*.wl) to that directory.  This is in essence what I 
do and they are fully visible in the WL window.

Yes, you are correct about this being in violation of your existing file 
management system.  And, yes, no doubt the developer could easily make and 
test the change you suggest in WL.  However, it does get the job done in the 

BTW, I have other programs that have the same problem of not being able to 
see a full path\file name in a window.  The most noticable is AOL where the 
ability to see a full path\file name is limited when attaching a file to an 
email message.
